This Rare Footage In The 1940s Shows Tennessee Like You’ve Never Seen Before

The Dale Hollow Dam in Tennessee is located roughly 100 miles east of Nashville, and was finished in the early 1940s. This footage is a historic compilation of the construction, as well as the untouched hills that once surrounded the massive industrial masterpiece. Curious? Take a look!

*Interesting fact: part of the lake created by the dam lies in Kentucky, which is actually the oldest manmade lake in the state. What a thing.

How insane is this – you’ve seen a complete picture of the past. A stunning reminder of where we’ve come from, and a beacon to where we’re headed.
