The TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) dammed the Holston River in 1941 to form Cherokee Lake, as seen from Clinch Mountain Lookout, near Bean Station, Tennessee. Clinch Mountain is a ridge in the U.S. states of Tennessee and Virginia, lying in the ridge-and-valley section of the Appalachian Mountains. It runs in a general east-northeasterly direction from near Blaine, Tennessee to Garden Mountain near Burke's Garden, Virginia. It separates the Clinch River basin, to the north, and the Holston River basin, to the south. Clinch Mountain is named after the Clinch River, named after an unknown pioneer. Cherokee Reservoir is named for the tribe of Native Americans who once lived here. The great Indian warpath, once followed by Daniel Boone, crossed the basin now filled by the reservoir.
