Built in 1932
The Robie Gym on South Street was built in 1932 for $20,000, according to “The Way It Was in Gorham,” by Bertha Bridges Willis.

Gorham’s Charles Robie, brother of a long-ago Maine governor, Fred Robie, left the town money for the gym. It was built beside the old Gorham High School, which was on the lot at the corner of South and Preble streets. The high school later became a fire barn, and the building was razed in the mid-1970s.

Rental Information
Robie Gym is available for community events and birthday parties.
