Hunter Gymnasium

Hunter Gymnasium

Marfa
Presidio County, Texas
30 18.719' N 104 01.585' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of Lincoln Street and Gonzales Street. The building is on the northeast corner of the intersection.

Text: In 1940, Marfa received a Works Progress Administration (WPA) grant of more than $15,000 to help build a new gymnasium named to honor athletic director Boren Hunter. The modified rectangular plan building features plastered adobe infill walls, a rare earthen material in buildings of this type. Other elements include concrete for pilasters and a continuous perimeter footing, and steel for open web roof trusses. A projecting entry steps down to the athletic court. The facility has been used for numerous school and community activities, figuring prominently into the lives of generations of students and citizens.
