Also known as the Old Bend High School Gym, this was once the cultural and recreational center of Bend. Inaugurated in 1919, the gym was dedicated to veterans of World War I. Consisting of three floors and a basement, the gym has an auditorium with a capacity of 1200, a lounge and library complete with lava rock fireplaces, a wrestling room, a caretaker’s apartment, a billiard room, lockers and shower. The building was renovated between 1995 and 1998 and re-opened its doors in 1999 as the Center for the Boys and Girls Club.
