In 1928-1929, with two-story block to either side of the prominent entrance block and its 80 feet by 155-foot brick structure the building was designed for Winston Churchill?s speech before an audience of 2800.

Winston Churchill?s speech on March 5 1946 introduced the term ?Iron Curtain? to the public which made a turning point in international relations and was once commented by the former President Truman saying ?It was one of the greatest speeches I ever listened to, a part of the policy of the free world ever since. In May 2, 1968, the Westminster College Gymnasium was designated in the National Historic Landmark.
