Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Fall Creek Falls State Park

Even though the area did not become a Tennessee State Park for several years, in 1935, Fall Creek Falls State Park was birthed with the initial purchase by the U. S. Government of the flood prone severely eroded land surrounding Fall Creek Falls – the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi River. The area was an extremely remote, sparsely populated region that housed some of the most spectacular waterfalls, diverse botanicals and archeological wonders in North America. Early visionaries saw the advantages of setting aside this spot for the benefit of their generation and future generations. 2011 marks the 75th Anniversary of the beginning of the work necessary to restore the forest and the severely eroded land, as well as the construction phase of the park facilities. The CCC (Civil Conservation Corps) and WPA (Works Project Administration) programs of the Great Depression served to supply the labor necessary to facilitate this task while providing employment for men looking for a means of providing for their families.

Currently, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most, if not the most visited state park in Tennessee. This is an expression of the love and gratitude for the place so many have worked to create and preserve. The park boasts of six waterfalls (one holding the distinction of being the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi), six spectacular overlooks, the second largest cave chamber in the United States, and the biodiversity afforded by the variations in microclimates within the park boundaries. If you have never been to the park, make plans to visit this year and experience the wonders that belong to all of us. If you have already visited, make time to take another look. You’ll be glad you did. While you are in the area, stop in at the local businesses and see all there is to discover.

Thank you to those that helped make this park the treasure that it is today — from the early CCC and WPA workers to the multitude of volunteers that continue to sacrifice their time and energy today.
Happy Anniversary Fall Creek Falls State Park!
