Cameron Stadium is an outdoor footballstadium adjacent to the campus of Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania. It is home to the college's football team, men's and women's soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey, as well as intramural activities. The main playing surface is Matrix turf, installed by Hellas Construction in 2009. The eight-lane, all-weather track was resurfaced in 2003. The stadium features Towler Hall, located next to the field house, which is the home to the W&J Athletic Hall of Fame. The adjacent Eaton/Gentile Room contains athletic memorability from the college's past.
The college purchased the property, the old Washington Fairgrounds, in 1885. In order to finance the purchase of the property, the college erected an oil well on the grounds. Students exercised in a makeshift facility under the grandstand in the years before the Old Gym was constructed in 1893. A large donation from the Cameron family financed the 1999 renovation project, with the installation of a new FieldTurf playing surface, the construction of an eight-lane outdoor track, the construction of improved visitor bleachers, and the installation of a new scoreboard. At the conclusion of the construction, the stadium was re-christened Cameron Stadium. (more...)
