On Saturday, February 6, 1954, the dream of each Muhlenberg alumnus was
realized when Memorial Hall, the new physical education building, was
dedicated in a brief program.
In the 50-plus years since, Memorial Hall has been the site of numerous
basketball games, wrestling meets, volleyball
matches and concerts. With a built-in seating capacity of 3,529, Memorial
Hall fosters a big-game atmosphere hard to match in Division III.
Although it is 50 years old, Memorial Hall remains a thoroughly modern
facility. Recent improvements have included the addition of an overhead
scoreboard and the 2004 repainting of the floor.
Memorial Hall annually hosts the Scotty Wood Tournament in basketball and
the Buttermaker Tournament in volleyball. It also was the site for the
2005 Centennial Conference Wrestling Championships.
