Description

A rock gym built as a WPA project. This was to be the gym for Snyder High School. Eventually a new high school was built and this became Travis Junior High. The building is in very good shape for an 80 year old structure. The hard maple basketball court floor remains as do four sets of folding bleachers.

It remains in use for occasional Little Dribblers basketball and indoor golf practice.
