Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. One of the headquarters buildings of farmers' cooperatives which distribute TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) power. With comfortable lounges, meeting rooms, and up-to-snuff shops, garages and offices, such buildings become centers of interest in the small towns in which they are located (quoted from previously written caption). Headquarters building of the rural power distribution cooperative at Shelbyville, Tennessee (see general comments under K 2382). In the design of these structures a certain degree of uniformity is observed to express the fact that they are parts of a nationwide system.

Each design is individually developed, however, from the special requirements of the organization and with attention to location and site characteristics
