Memorial Gymnasium was built in 1950 as a cooperative effort between Galesburg businessmen and Knox College to honor World War I and II veterans. The maple floor is ideal for varsity level men's and women's basketball and volleyball, as well as intramural volleyball, and it has the largest seating capacity in the Midwest Conference. But since its original construction, the look and feel of the gym has not changed.
Memorial Gym received a facelift in the spring of 2008 that retained the integrity and vintage feel of the facility, while giving the gym some very modern updates. Fundraising efforts were spurred by the generosity of Duke '74 and Nancy Petrovich, who provided half of the renovation cost. Other six-figure leadership donors to the renovation were Tom '66 and Sue Fuerst Anderson '71.
