The Project Let’s Chat team is working to finish another installment of Jefferson County landmarks with an exploration of Cherokee Dam. The piece will examine its significance to the community and the nation, especially as part of the war effort.

Jefferson County Historian Bob Jarnagin and lake enthusiast Ed Stiner were among those who took part in the video shoot, as did three TVA representatives – Pat Ezell, the agency’s historian; Cherokee Plant Manager Erik Bodiscomassink and Brand Coordinator Laura Smith.
