The Works Progress Administration built the Peoria High School Gymnasium in Peoria, Maricopa County, circa 1937. The building construction was adobe brick masonry with reinforced concrete foundation. It measured 68 x 100 feet. The façade finish was plaster and the interior flooring was hardwood with sleepers. A vaulted, lamella truss roof covered with copper topped the structure.
