Lakeview being the key word here! 2020 Lakeview drive Butler Tennessee sits on the prettiest point of the lake which overlooks the lake that covers up "Old Butler". yep that's right, The old town of Butler Tennessee was flooded over (on purpose) and now is under water.
And so the story goes...... Butler had an over abundance of water in the form of floods which caused many deaths in the small Tennessee communinty. There was a powerful killer flood in 1940 and the Tennessee Valley Authority made a decision to build a Dam, flooding the town of Butler and all valleys surrounding it. Butler is the only town to ever be flooded by the Tennessee Valley Authority.
