It’s the week of Valentine’s Day, and we can’t help but think about how much we love DePaul’s campus! Today’s trivia question brings in some nostalgia about the history of DePaul’s older buildings. This space, buillt in 1907, was originally built for the arts and was later transformed into a gymnasium where the Blue Demon basketball team played 1920-1957. The building caught fire in 1969 and was torn down in 1979. The Ray Meyer Fitness Center now stands on that site. What is the full name of the vintage building pictured here?
Hint: The space was nicknamed “The Barn.”

Happy guessing! And remember these trivia rules:
