Mesquite High School Gymnasium
1939, Miles Miller. 144 E. N. 1st St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

Miller designed this building, another PWA project, as a near twin to the Bunkerville Community Center ( SO66), with the same red brick, terra-cotta ornamentation and massing of small rooms around three sides of the taller gymnasium. The Mesquite building, however, retains most of its original multilight, steelframe sash windows and therefore more of its original appearance than the other example.
