1990 Charles E. Peterson Prize, Entry
Significance: The Northwestern State University Women's Gymnasium, 1923, is a three story brick Jacobean Revival building located on the edge of the university campus. The exterior incorporates sixteen century architectural elements in a large rectangular mass to give the effect of a Jacobean country house. The building has been little altered since construction but has not suffered any significant loss of integrity. The Women's Gymnasium is locally significant in the area as it represents the architectural firm of Favrot and Livaudais, of New Orleans.
