King Health and Physical Education Center
The modern gymnasium was built in 1970, funded in part by a gift from E. Ward King of Kingsport, Tenn. The building memorializes Mr. King’s father, John Rutledge King. An adjoining junior olympic swimming pool was added in 1975. In 2000, a large addition to the center was completed, providing a new fitness center, additional locker space, and new racquetball courts.
