The groundbreaking for Southern College's first gymnasium was on March 3, 1927. Completed later that year, the gymnasium was not only a home to athletics, but also to the Art Department and the Department of Expression. The building featured six classrooms alongside the auditorium. In 1936, it was torn down, and in 1937, the new structure built in its place was named the Ruel B. Gilbert Gymnasium.
