French Broad River
French Broad River

The French Broad River flows from near Rosman in Transylvania County, North Carolina, into Tennessee. Its confluence with the Holston River at Knoxville, Tennessee is considered to be the headwaters of the Tennessee River. It was originally named for being one of two broad rivers in western North Carolina . The one which flowed into formerly French territory was named the French Broad, and the other which stayed in English territory (the American colonies) was named the English Broad, now just the Broad River. The lower portion of the river is the site of a major hydroelectric dam development of the Tennessee Valley Authority, Douglas Dam, which is one of the larger TVA developments on a Tennessee River tributary stream. Douglas, like many of the older TVA facilites in East Tennessee, was initially developed largely to meet the power demands entailed by World War II, particularly the atomic weapons plant at Oak Ridge.

The river begins west of the Eastern Continental Divide, and therefore actually flows northwest through the Appalachian Mountains. The river flows through the city of Asheville, North Carolina, where it picks up the Swannanoa River.

The French Broad River
The French Broad River is dubbed by the locals as "The Forks of the River". This is where its North and West Forks merge together just outside of Rosman, North Carolina beginning its long and northeasterly journey to the Gulf of Mexico. The French Broad is the third oldest river in the world, older than the mountains from which it flows. Only the Nile and the New River, which is also located in North Carolina, predate it. Flowing 210 miles round about and through the mountains of Western North Carolina makes it the longest river in North Carolina. After dropping out of the mountains into Tennessee it soon joins up with the Holston River to create the Tennessee River.
The portion of this great waterway on which we operate contains wide shorelines and slow-moving currents, ideal for families or the first time canoeist. The banks are lined with mossy sycamores, flowering dogwood, elderberry, blackberries, tulip poplars, dozens of songbirds, and an endless array of wildflowers, along with abundant wildlife to view.

This river inspired Wilma Dykeman to write in her book,
The French Broad:
"Which is the time to know the river? April along the French Broad is a swirl of sudden water beneath the bending buds of spicewood bushes, a burst of spring and a breath of sweetness between the snows of winter and the summer sun. August is a film of dust on purple asters along the country roads of the lower river, and green stillness of heavy shade splattered with sunlight beside the upper river. October is to flame, A Renaissance richness of red and amber, Septembers end and Novembers beginning."
