4–H Club Building

-A A +A
1939–1942. Logan St., just east of Gate 9

A three-story WPA structure of poured concrete manages to reflect the Streamline Moderne style. The corners of the building are curved, and, as expected, contain glass brick. The centerpiece of the building's front facade is a central hexagonal window, with a thin vertical section dropping below it appearing like an abstracted keyhole. Around the first floor is a metal porch detailed like those on an ocean liner.
