"The visitors' gallery is above the director's office, trophy room, and main entrance, at the north end of the building. It seats one hundred and fifty people and its situation is such as to command the best possible view of the main floor.
The track, covered with a Roberts felt and canvas mat, is built in a suspended gallery constructed especially for the purpose. It is curved, inclined, and has concave parabolic ends. By placing one end of it in a tunnel behind and under the visitors' gallery it was made a twenty-lap track with very easy curves." -Prospectus of the Department of Physical Training of Washington & Jefferson College, 1894-1895.
