TVA's 75th Anniversary
The TVA Act was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on May 18, 1933. The Tennessee Valley Authority celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2008, and the TVA Board marked the historic occasion at its meeting Monday, May 19, 2008 in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
As part of the celebration, a variety of activities took place throughout the year, including employee and retiree celebrations, events with customers and community partners, and recognition of the importance of TVA’s past and the relevance of its future.
TVA has a long and proud history of serving the Tennessee Valley, providing reliable, affordable electricity, supporting a thriving river system, and stimulating economic growth. Significant events from TVA’s past are highlighted on this site and information and photos are available for download.
