Blacksburg High School moved from its former location on South Main Street (where it had been since 1952) to its current location on Patrick Henry Drive in 1974. After moving out, the old building housed Blacksburg Middle School, and the high school played its home football games there until October 2008. The new Blacksburg High School football stadium is located on Prices Fork Road behind the new Blacksburg Middle School.
On February 13, 2010, the roof of the gym at Blacksburg High School collapsed possibly due to the heavy snow storm. No one was injured, however. The students completed the 2009-2010 school year on a night schedule at the Blacksburg Middle School building at 3109 Prices Fork Rd. The following year and for the foreseeable future classes are being held on a normal schedule at 3109 Prices Fork Rd (Formerly Blacksburg Middle School).
