An application for the erection of a stadium grandstand at the Natchez High School was submitted September 7, 1935 to the Brookhaven WPA office. City bonds were used in addition to WPA labor to construct the grandstand on the west side of the football field, completed in summer of 1936. It accommodated 900 spectators. A new high school was constructed in 1963, however old high school field remained in use for a period of time afterwards. The stadium has since been demolished.
