Commemorated in 1998 with an addition to the National Register of Historic Places, the Wisconsin Field House opened as an indoor multi-sports complex in 1930. The University of Wisconsin owns the Wisconsin Field House, which is located south of Camp Randall Stadium and Camp Randall Ð a university-owned Army Camp. Constructed from carved limestone and sandstone over steel framework, the Wisconsin Field House's original architect is a mystery except for a W crest above the main door. While best-known for hosting men's and women's basketball games, like the Wisconsin Badgers, the Wisconsin Field House also regularly hosts volleyball, wrestling and boxing events.
