Franklin’s Cody Rd, White Pine, TN 37890 5600 sq ft Franklin’s The Isaac White Rodgers Franklin’s Riverview House is located in East TN on the French Broad River, about 2 miles downstream from the confluence of the Nolichucky, Pigeon and French Broad Rivers, now Douglas Lake, part of the TVA in Jefferson County, TN. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and overlooks the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Isaac Franklin’s Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather was Josiah Franklin who was a brother to Benjamin Franklin. Not including the out buildings, the home’s dimensions measure roughly fifty-five feet by fifty-five feet and contains nearly 5600 square feet of floor space on two main levels.
Each bedroom and parlor within the house measures eighteen by eighteen feet. The main corridor running from the front entrance to the back door has a width of thirteen feet and the length of forty feet. The kitchen is sixteen by eighteen feet and contains approximately 575 usable feet on the two upper levels. The nearby smoke house shares similar dimensions of eighteen by eighteen feet. The room layout for Fairfax was for the most part, quite typical of Greek Revival Homes.
Although the four room plan with central hallway was common from the predominant Georgian architecture of the 1700s to the establishment of the Victorian era in the latter 1800s it was particularly suitable to the inherently simple and square nature of the Greek revival period. Customarily a straight, wide corridor split the two rooms on the right from the two rooms on the left, as it ran from the front to the rear entrances. The tee-shaped corridor found at the Fairfax is a similar hallway arrangements are found in other wealthy Tennessee homes built between 1830-1850. Plans of Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage and unrelated Isaac Franklin’s Fairview, both near Nashville, include the tee-shaped hallway. These plans also reflect the importance of the porticoes or verandas on the front and rear, if not on all Sides of the home. In addition to the main house, the Fairfax property also included a separate kitchen and smokehouse. Over its history, Fairfax has been labeled with an assortment of styles and dates of construction. Its architecture has been termed Georgian, Federal and Greek Revival, and a variety of sources have dated the home anywhere between 1825 to 1860.

Douglas Reservoir
Douglas Dam is on the French Broad River in east Tennessee. The reservoir extends 43 miles upriver from the dam through the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Set against the backdrop of the Smoky Mountain foothills, Douglas Reservoir is a popular recreation destination, known for picnicking, camping, boating, and fishing.
Douglas and other TVA dams built during World War II made a historic contribution by providing hydropower to drive the war effort. The reservoir remains an integral unit in the overall water control system in the Tennessee Valley.
Birdwatchers enjoy the fall migration of shore birds, wading birds, and other waterfowl that flock to Douglas from late July to early October. The birds rest and feed on the muddy shoreline and in areas of shallow water exposed as the level of the reservoir is lowered to winter flood control levels.

Facts & Figures
Work on Douglas Dam began in February 1942 and was completed on a crash schedule in just 12 months and 17 days. The construction of Douglas set a world record for projects of equivalent size.
Douglas Dam is a hydroelectric facility. It has four generating units with a net dependable capacity of 111 megawatts. Net dependable capacity is the amount of power a dam can produce on an average day, minus the electricity used by the dam itself.
The dam is 201 feet high and stretches 1,705 feet across the French Broad River.
Douglas Reservoir provides 513 miles of shoreline and about 28,420 acres of water surface for recreation activities.
In a year with normal rainfall, the water level in Douglas Reservoir varies about 44 feet from summer to winter to provide seasonal flood storage.
The reservoir has a flood-storage capacity of 1,082,000 acre-feet.
