The Federal Presence: A Big Deal

Record #:
For almost sixty years the federal government has been a presence in Western Carolina both as a preserver of the environment and as employer for projects. Counties benefit from money spent by the government and by tourists who are drawn by the government's creations. Among the projects are the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains, and Tennessee Valley Authority, whose dams create lakes for recreational use.
