Trousdale County


Trousdale County is home to a nuclear power plant that the Tennessee Valley Authority never finished. You can see the never-operational Hartsville Nuclear Power Plant from nearly 20 miles away. It sort of towers over Trousdale County.

If you can think of a use for it, please tell someone, because the people in Trousdale County have been trying to do something with the Hartsville Nuclear Power Plant for a long time!
