Stadium High School was originally built in 1891 as a hotel for the Northern Pacific Railroad Company. The financial panic of 1893 brought the construction to a halt. The unfinished building was subsequently used as a storage facility. On October 11, 1898 the building was destroyed by a fire. In 1904 the building was purchased by the Tacoma School District with the intention of turning it into a high school. The reconstructed building was opened on September 10, 1906 as Tacoma High School. It was later renamed Stadium High. The school achieved fame as the main location for the filming of the 1999 movie “Ten Things I Hate About You”. Stadium High School is located in Tacoma, Washington State, USA.
