Abstract. It is substantially significant to protect historical structures, which are an important part of our culture, against natural disasters such as earthquakes and to be transmitted to future generations. The structural behaviour of historical buildings must be well known to protect such structures. In order to be able to determine how safe the historic buildings are against the earthquake effect, it is necessary to determine the earthquake performance. Nowadays, the most commonly used method for the modelling and structural analysis of historical buildings systems with complex geometries is the finite element method.

In this study, Historical Konya Gazi High School was examined according to the present situation regarding the design and construction features with Regulations on buildings to be built in earthquake regions and structural analysis was performed in ETABS program. Graphs showing displacements, moments, shear forces and axial forces are used to interpret the results of the finite element analysis of the Historical Gazi High School. It has been informed about the stresses and damages that may be caused by any earthquake to this building, which has been serving the students for 97 years. It is aimed that this work will be a study to suggest a solution in terms of not losing the our historical values and delivering it to future generations.
