Visitors' buildings. Because the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) system is owned by the public, visitors are encouraged to inspect the projects, and do so in large numbers. Many of them arrive after traveling long distances; therefore, restrooms and refreshment concessions are provided. The photograph shows such facilities at south end of Pickwick Landing Dam, divided between twin buildings which straddle the earthfill portion of the dam. The buildings front on an overlook terrace which connects with broad stairs to the lock operating deck below
