Harvey Dow Gibson + Ada Cram Wadsworth Arena

Looking for a state-of-the-art fitness facility to help you meet your fitness goals? Look no further than the Harvey Dow Gibson and Ada Cram Wadsworth Arena!

This impressive facility boasts a 31,000-square-foot gymnasium, which features three full-sized basketball courts, an indoor track, a wrestling facility, a sports training room, a modern fitness center, eight locker rooms, athletic offices, and a conference room. 

The arena is named after Ada Cram Wadsworth, who was the sister of Bion R. Cram - a member of the Class of 1933, for whom the library was named. Furthermore, the building's Gibson name remains as a testament to the generous donation given by Mr. Gibson's niece, Mrs. Woodbury, from North Conway, NH.
