his Forest had its beginning in lands purchased by the Resettlement Administration and deeded to the State in 1955. It became a State Forest in 1961. It is located on the Eastern Highland Rim in Overton and Clay Counties. The forest is approximately 20 miles north of Cookeville and is bisected by State Route 136. The majority of lands were eroded and degraded due to extensive row cropping and poor farming practices. The forested areas had been subjected to heavy timber cutting, high grading, and frequent fires.
