Description
Norris, founded in conjunction with the building of the Norris Dam, is owned and controlled by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). In 1948 the entire town was sold to a Philadelphia company, which divided the lots and resold them as individual properties. The town and dam are named for Nebraska Sen. George W. Norris, co-sponsor of the bill that established the TVA.
