Norris and Points of Interest

Norris was built in 1933, TVA's "Greenbelt Town" and a model for urban planners. Its immediate purpose was to house the workers who were building Norris Dam four miles away on the Clinch River. Eleanor Roosevelt visited when the CCC was active. Evidence of worker camps can still be seen in the woods surrounding the town. Be sure to visit the Grist Mill on your way to the dam. It is a working mill; however, it runs only occasionally to save the mill stone.

Norris Lake offers all-season fun. Several marinas serve the boating crowd. Great hiking trails surround the lake. On one, you will discover steps that led to CCC camps back in the day.

The Museum of Appalachia, a Smithsonian site and world-class venue, is located at 2819 Andersonville Highway, Clinton, 37716. You will walk through old Appalachia, see the gardens and farm animals, and hear old-timely tunes.

The Appalachian Arts and Crafts Center, 2716 Andersonville Hwy, across from the Museum of Appalachia, offers unique, useful, artful, affordable, juried pieces from local artisans.

At the American Museum of Science & Energy, 300 Tulane, Oak Ridge, 37830, the Manhattan Project will come alive. You will see photos, such as the one of cubicle operators at Y-12, standing at their stations, 1944. The museum is packed with records, equipment, and testimonies from the war effort—as well as other exhibits of interest. Phone (865) 576-3200; website http://amse.org; email nfo@amse.org.

The Green McAdoo Museum features the life and times of the Clinton 12, students who braved fierce opposition to attend the all-white high school in Clinton. It is located at 101 School St, Clinton 37716-2326, 865-463-6500.
