Long Description:
Tennessee Eastman Company, formerly part of Eastman Kodak, maintains a company recreational area at the base of Bays Mountain in Kingsport, TN. The "old" lodge was constructed after WWII using a set of quonset huts to provide a large meeting area and kitchen facility. I remember when I joined the company twenty years ago that our first group meeting was a dinner held here. Company clubs and groups used the facility and nearby picnic grounds for years until the company decided it had $5M to build a pair of "new" lodges. The "old" lodge appears to be a storage shed at this time, but still in good condition.
