The original Drill Hall, now a gymnasium, was designed with battered walls to give the massive building a military, fort-like appearance. Above the main entrance, the architects provided a large ornamentation of the bow of an ancient sailing ship, oars in oarlocks and surmounted by a large spread eagle to serve as a masthead. In times of war the Drill Hall has served variously as a storehouse, barracks, hospital ward and, during WWII, housed a Protestant chapel at one end and a Catholic chapel at the other.
