In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Tennessee Valley Authority authorization to begin the development of the proposed Land Between the Lakes National Recreation and Environmental Education Area, the Trigg County Historical and Preservation Society, has the honor of introducing its 2013 bronze ornament.

This glowing medallion is a two-sided graphic depiction of the Land Between the Lakes geological formed peninsula and adjacent waterways. The front depicts the current Land Between the Lakes developmental format with the 170,000-acre landform and adjacent Kentucky and Barkley lakes. The reverse side is historical and depicts the ridge with its adjacent Tennessee and Cumberland river systems and hence “Between the Rivers” land-water form.

Initially, the Tennessee Valley Authority explored concepts and communicated with a wide range of governmental agencies before implementation was authorized. Concepts planned for visitor vehicular entrances and information centers at existing accesses in the north, center, south and vehicle routes to and through accessible areas of 170,000-acre area.
