Measuring 80 feet wide and 42 feet tall, and constructed from more than 2,000 tons of sandstone, Cold Water Falls is also the world's largest man-made natural stone waterfall.
Interestingly, each day, more than 4.3 million gallons of water also flow over this waterfall structure.
Wilson Dam, which spans the Tennessee River between Lauderdale and Colbert counties, is the only neoclassical-style dam in the TVA system. It's also one of the world's highest, single-lift locks. Completed in 1924, Wilson Dam is home to Alabama's second Singing River Waterfall, Wilson Dam Waterfall.
