I called TVA Map & Photo Records earlier today. If I understood the
directions correctly: Take Lee Hwy. to Bonnie Oaks Dr. Turn Left on Hickory Valley
Rd. Go across railroad tracks to 2nd warehouse on right to 2837 Hickory
Valley Rd. The lady that I spoke to said that the land acquisition maps are $25
each. If you wish to call there the telephone number is: 1-800-627-7882.

Next time we're in Chattanooga (which will be in about two weeks), I'll go
there. Going toward Tyner from E. Brainerd Rd., I assume I'll pass Tyner
Rd. Then is the store on the left or right? I can't picture exactly where
it could be. Right now I'll check the URL you gave me, and maybe there
will be an exact location given there.
