John&Patti's wonderful adventure travel blog





On the last day in Paducah I took a 30 minute ride to the Kentucky Dam. This is part of the TVA and is the last dam on the Tennessee River. I spoke was a couple of docents at the visitor center and the discussed the whole operation. Flood control, power generation and recreation are all part of the story. Of course, there were many in the area that bitterly opposed this depression era project (many lost their land to reservoirs).
