Winchester TN had Tennessee's First hydroelectric power plant.


The Tennessee Legislature in 1901 authorized Winchester to issue bonds to construct a water works and power plant. With the construction of the Loop Power Plant on Elk River some six and one-half miles north of the Public Square, Winchester became the first town in Tennessee to have a hydroelectric plant.  


A dam 20 feet high was built to route water to the plant.  A flume was cut through rock to carry the water to the power plant.  Twenty years later, and a very similar plant was constructed a few miles further north of the Loop Power plant in Estill Springs.  


Remains of both the power plant and dam can still be seen.
