St. Joseph Catholic Church began as a Mission in 1933.  Construction of Norris Dam had just began bringing many workers into a formerly inaccessible area. Serving a large portion of Anderson County St. Joseph has grown from its Mission beginnings into a thriving Parish on a hill, a beacon of Catholic faith for the community.
