Opened in 1936, this venue sits in a park which straddles the state border. The football stadium sits on the West Virginia side, while neighboring Bowen Field baseball park stands in Virginia.
Mitchell Stadium was named for the city manager of Bluefield, West Virginia, who oversaw funding and construction of the venue. Mitchell serves as the home to both Bluefield High in West Virginia and Graham High directly across the border in Virginia.
