Pickwick Dam. Reception room of a powerhouse which is somewhat difficult to reach (therefore, supplementary visitors' facilities were developed at the opposite end of the dam in separate buildings). Rest rooms, elevators, stairway, overlook balcony, and control room can be viewed either through glass doors from this room or from large plate glass openings of the overlook balcony. Terrazzo floor and base, burlap covered plaster walls, acoustic plaster ceiling. Graphic display is in a shallow wall niche between control room doors; top line shows three functions of projects in cross-sectional perspectives; photographs elaborate on TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) program; map of valley is  applied to specially constructed movable table
This photograph shows opposite side of Norris visitors' building described under K 1868 (above) where the central hall abuts the overlook terrace. Side doors give access to refreshment stand and cooperative store permitting the service of refreshments to visitors on the terrace
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
View of the overlook terrace of the Norris visitors' building described under K 313. The terrace and stairs are constructed in reinforced concrete forming an extension of the parapet of the nearby dam
