Constructed of red brick, the Red Gym was designed in the Romanesque revival style and built in 1894 to function as a combination gymnasium and armory.  After surviving demolition plans after WWII and again in 1963, as well as an anti-war protest firebomb in 1970, it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1993 and presently serves as the University Visitors Center.
