The first official Tennessee High School opened in 1916 on Alabama Street. The first part of the current campus was built in 1939. The Bristol Municipal Stadium, also known as the Stone Castle, hosts football and soccer games and was built in 1936 as part of the New Deal. Viking Hall, which opened in 1981, is Bristol Tennessee's civic center and the location of Tennessee High basketball games.
Each February, the school participates in a fund raising drive for the American Heart Association called "Queen of Hearts" with Virginia High School, Sullivan East High School and John S. Battle High School.
