Tallassee, AL Thurlow Dam T-Shirt by Hometown Heritage
Thurlow Damn on the Tallapoosa River Located in Tallassee, Alabama
Tallassee, Alabama, used to receive all of its electricity from a small mill, but by the 1920s, the town was in desperate need of something that could generate much more power. The Thurlow Dam, built in 1930 on the Tallapoosa River and the former site of a textile mill that had been used during the Civil War as an ammunition plant and uniform factory, houses one generator with a 574-acre reservoir named Lake Talisi that features six miles of exquisite shore line. The dam was originally advertised as “The Niagara of the South,” and that moniker is still used today. Today, opening of the gates are still viewed by locals and visitors alike, and the rushing waters are a sight that cannot be beat. When the reservoir is filled, it’s an excellent site for fishing and boating. Those with a more adventurous side may look to explore around the Old Mill Railroad Bridge that crosses the Tallapoosa River, just south of the reservoir. No longer in service, the bridge is roughly 785 feet long and was built in 1920.
