Walter Hill Hydroelectric Station on the Stone's River was an interesting encounter at the time of our visit. This early 1900's hydroelectric station is no longer in use but the dam area is a noted spot for photography. Do watch your step since much ‘horse poop' was along the trails and at the dam area. Do take everything you need for a visit, sturdy shoes, drinking water, snacks, etc. Also we saw no facilities so plan ahead.

If you have not been here yet, you should know that while it is a great place, families with younger kids may want to use caution.

When you park, it is a very short walk to the river bank, but you do have to walk down a small hill that can be slippery if it is wet.

The banks along the river downstream of the "falls" are all small rocks. So best to bring shoes.

Finally, the current can be swift, especially after a rain.

That being said, we love to come here and just listen to the sound of the "falls" and wade out into the cool water.

There is a boat launch located in the same area, and you can climb to the top of the "falls" for swimming as well. It tends to be deeper and has less current.

The Walter Hill Hydroelectric Station is a beautiful place to visit. You can feel the powerfully charged falls when you get close to them. At the bottom it is very loud, but it gets quiet as you make your way to the top.

It was a gorgeous day out when we visited. There were people fishing, reading in lounge chairs, and barbecuing. There is a boat ramp, picnic tables, and trails also available at this location. It is a great place for a day out. It’s so beautiful I feel it is a must see when in the Murfreesboro area.

Station in ruins, not much to see. Water stinks, no really..stinky. Right next to Mt. Trashmore, the dump that takes everyones trash in a 2 hour radius. Could and should be nice but it never will be thanks to dump.

I love going here to view the water on a pretty day. It is only 10 mins from our house. You can see families walking around and exploring. It is not a big place but beautiful none the less.

Nothing to see here. Down stream from the dump. If you fish here, throw them all back. Nice picnic area but some of the folks using this area are a bit sketchy. My friends and I used to go out there when it was in the middle of nowhere and swim but that was before the dump. Don't be in this area after the sun goes down. A different sort of clientele rolls in.

It took us 2 days to find this attraction because the instructions are vague. It is located on US 231 2 miles north of Hwy 268 on the right ( East ) just before you go over the bridge. Go down the dirt road and there it is. Only a shell of a building is still but the 8 ft high water fall is very picturesque.standing. If you are in the area its nice to see from an Engineering feat and the serene waterfall.

Map in this site is way off...it's just down the street from the VA hospital. I just happened to find on my second day in town. It's not not marked with a blue sign like the rest of of sites. Beautiful area and I love the sound!! Water is very clear. I wish I could find more information about the site. It's not a popular tourist attraction and I wouldn't take young children. BUT I really enjoyed it!!

The dam is a really unique place in Murfreesboro. There are many spots that you can see the river, and witness the amazing power of water. I think the area could use a good cleanup, as it seems that people use it as a dumping ground. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the road down to it. The Greenway trail is a nice addition though.
