GU History
Original Gonzaga College building, Recreation Center, and St. Aloysius Church.
From its inaugural year of 1887, Gonzaga College continued to grow in enrollment. By 1891 space was a problem. The following year plans were drawn up for a two-story framed hall designed to serve as a recreation center on the main floor and a dormitory upstairs. In the fall of 1892, two scholastics and 18 boys moved into the new building. St. Aloysius Church was built and dedicated in November of that year. Electricity and city water became available to the neighborhood that same year.
