Originally built in the 1939 as a Federal Works Agency and Public Works Administration project, Radnor Activity Center at Sulpizio Gym (RAC) was once part of Radnor High School and used as their gymnasium. When the high school moved to its current location in 1958, the school and gym were used as part of Radnor Middle School. When the school building was demolished in 2007 to build a new middle school, the gymnasium remained. Following a renovation in 2008, the RAC was leased to the Township by Radnor School District for use by the Recreation Department for indoor programming and use by community residents and organizations. This facility adds a dimension to the programming capabilities of the Recreation and Community Programming Department.
The building was named in honor of Louis J. Sulpizio, a former educator, coach and administrator within the Radnor School District. Mr. Sulpizio was born and raised in Wayne and was a graduate of Radnor High School. He joined the school district in 1951. Over his tenure, he taught history, coached all sports, and retired as the Radnor Middle School Assistant Principal in 1983.
