Constructed in 1905 to tame the whirlpools along the Tennessee River, legend has it that the dam was cursed by Native Americans. Some say if visitors get too close, they’ll be sucked in. Witnesses have seen eerie black figures and heard chanting, and some have seen apparitions of drowning Native Americans. The dam has been featured on TV’s Ghost Adventures.
