Pickwick Landing State Park was a riverboat stop dating from the 1840s. In the 1930s during the depression, the site was chosen as a location for one of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s dams on the Tennessee River. What comprises the park today was once the living area for the TVA construction crews and their families. The TVA Village, better known as Pickwick Village was located where the Post Office, Park office and day use area are now located. The State of Tennessee purchased all 681 acres of Pickwick from TVA in 1969 designating the area as a state park in 1970. Since that time additional land has been brought to enlarge the park.
