Borden Gym with an Open Middle Configuration

Title:
  • Borden Gym with an Open Middle Configuration
Description:
  • Construction on Borden Gym was started in 1900 and opened officially on March 22, 1902 with a basketball game against the Harvard Freshmen. It replaced the gym that had been in Bulfinch Hall, which was now to become a Dining Hall. In 1909 the students started a fund to build a pool, and by the end of 1911 the pool was open in a new wing. It has since held many events not the least of which was SAT Testing. With all the gymnastics equipment arrayed around the outside except for a springboard, a horizontal bar and a mat, it appears horizontal bar was the likely focus of the day's classes.
