I guess being on the National Historic Register doesn't mean anything when a company has money to do what they want… This Dam is going to be destroyed by Vulcan Materials… Another great fishery ruined by money…. Is The Mill Restaurant Dam next just so people can tube down a river…??? There is absolutely no reason this Dam should be destroyed… Sevierville is a joke tourist town now only fueled my greed and money…!!!

Vulcan Materials has a petition to tear this dam down. I would like to know why and what impact it will have on there area around it.
