German Club Manor

The Manor is the permanent home of the German Club. It was constructed in 1981 on Southgate Drive in close proximity to the Virginia Tech campus and Lane Stadium. After ten years, in 1991, significant additions were made to the Manor, including the Gordon Ballroom. This room is named in honor of Charles O. Gordon Sr. (1920 – 2004), a founder of the German Club Alumni Foundation, engineer, philanthropist, accomplished businessman and dedicated benefactor who gave much of his time and resources to Virginia Tech and the German Club. Today, the Manor serves as a permanent resource to the German Club and surrounding community alike.


The Charles O. Gordon Ballroom was added to the Manor in 1991. Occupying 4,000 sq. feet, the Gordon Ballroom is ideal for all kinds of gatherings, from company or departmental retreats to wedding ceremonies and holiday parties.
