Burnham Pavilion (Stanford University)
|Former names||Stanford Pavilion |
|Location||615 Serra Street, |
|Opened||January 24, 1922|
It was home to the Stanford University Cardinal basketball team prior to Maples Pavilion opening in 1968. When it opened, it was the largest arena used exclusively for basketball. On March 10, 1953, the Pavilion hosted a first round NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament matchup between the University of Santa Clara and Hardin-Simmons University.
It was known for many years as the "Old Pavilion" but was renamed Burnham Pavilion in 1989 after Malin Burnham, a principal contributor to a renovation that increased capacity to 1,400. As of 2009 it houses the gymnastics teams, the wrestling team and the men's volleyball team.
