Shelton Gymnasium

Status: Lost

Year Listed: 2003

Location: Mason County

The Art Moderne style, reinforced concrete Shelton Gymnasium was constructed as a high school gym in 1939-40 and used for that purpose until 1974. The entire high school complex has been torn down except for the gym, which for many years stood as a reminder of the community’s hopes as it shook off the Great Depression. Although it was eligible for both state and national registers, the building was not listed. The gym was demolished in 2005.
