Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)

One of the most important events in Tennessee since the Civil War was the establishment of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) in May 1933.


TVA’s got a Web site just for kids! Learn about how TVA makes electricity, reduces flood damage, protects wildlife, and lots more. There’s a section for teachers, too.

The construction of TVA projects involved the removal of thousands of graves.

TVA Cultural Resources consults with 18 federally recognized Native American tribes that have a cultural and historical interest in the Tennessee Valley (see list below).

Grave Removal

The threat of rising reservoir waters flooding local cemeteries forced Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) officials to relocate entire cemeteries in southeastern Tennessee. In doing so, they found reminders of slaves as members of extended Southern families.

The TVA relocated the graves of five slaves, one unidentified, buried in the Wilson family cemetery. The inscription on their monument reads: "To the memory of Ned, Claibe, Rhoda and Ett, Negro slaves of Charles and Peggy Haley who remained faithful to the end."


When TVA relocated individuals and families from their homeplaces, forms known as Family
Relocation Forms were completed.  These forms detailed each family's situation and background and are tremendously useful pieces of information. Unfortunately these forms are no longer housed at TVA, but have been transferred to the National Archives--Southeastern Region, 1557 St. Jospeh Avenue, East Point, Georgia 30344, (404) 763-7650.  Also with this information at the National Archives are other listings of individuals and businesses who were

impacted by TVA projects.
