Though black public education existed in Giles County by 1869, Bridgeforth was the first black high school. Designed by America's first black architectural firm, McKissack and McKissack, which had the local roots, and named for black educator J. T. Bridgeforth, the school operated from 1937 until 1958, when a larger facility was built nearby. In 1965, Giles County became the first county in Tennessee to voluntarily integrate its schools.
