Oak Ridge Pool Cross Springs

In the early 1940s, the unincorporated community of Robertsville, Tennessee began to disappear from the maps having been quickly depopulated by the Army Corps of Engineers. An important crossroads since pioneer days, the space occupied by this community was needed to secure war time facilities being constructed for the Clinton Engineering Works (CEW) - the code name for the Anderson County portion of the Manhattan Project site.
