As one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the southeast, Norris Lake has a long history beginning as early as 1911. During this year, the location for a future dam development in the upper Tennessee Valley had been discovered. The future development site named "Cove Creek Site" at the time was chosen due to its natural landscape and ability to host a large dam. On October 1, 1933, the relatively new Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) took on their largest project and first dam, the construction of Norris Dam. The initial budget for the project was over $32 million dollars. Flooding had been a problem for the Tennessee valley for some time, and it was the goal for Norris Dam to bring some stability to the uncontrollable and unpredictable flooding as well as provide a substantial power source to the area. The name for the dam was an honor given to a long time supporter of TVA and Nebraska Senator George Norris (1861 - 1944).
On March 4, 1936, Norris Dam was completed with the gates closed. The finished dam itself is 1,860 feet long and 265 feet high. By January of 1937, the Norris Reservoir was filled completely, creating the largest reservoir on a tributary of the Tennessee River. Norris Lake hosts 33,480 acres of water surface and approximately 809 miles of shoreline. TVA's finished project, the Norris Dam, also proudly delivers a maximum energy delivery of 131,400 kilowatts.
The construction process of Norris Dam and the reservoir required massive purchases and acquisitions. Over 152,000 acres of land were purchased; 2,841 families and 5,226 graves were relocated to provide the construction area needed for the huge TVA project. The town of Norris, TN, was initially founded and built to house all of the thousands of workers involved in the construction of Norris Dam.

About the owner: Debbie and Chuck Samples have owned Indian River Marina for 20 years.
Why the Owner Chose Jacksboro, TN, USA:
Debbie watches too much HGTV and has had the itch to flip a house. When she happened upon pictures of tiny houses, she thought, "That's really all you need on vacation . . . a nice place to sleep at night because you're out on the lake all day." So, husband Chuck, conveniently a builder, helped fulfill the dream by working with her to design the Cottages of Indian River.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Brand new. Designer decorated. Rental includes boat slip. Two miles from town.
