Tennessee Valley Stories

From its early explorations as the first western frontier to the development of carbon fiber, the Tennessee River Valley has been home to explorers, farmers, researchers, musicians, artists, and to some of the most significant events that defined America's  history.  

The context of these stories have been shaped by the regional geography and waterways of the Tennessee River Valley.  It is also the story of movement- People coming to the Valley and people that were displaced. 

We seek to capture these stories and hope that you will share your own stories from the Tennessee River Valley.
