Walker's Ford existed on the Clinch River between Claiborne County and Union County in Tennessee; the Walker's Ford article covers the history of the area in more detail. The current article provides TVA's Reservation Map (at right), and property owners below who lived south of Flint Creek and north of Lone Mountain on the Union County side. A separate map shows the area north of Flint Creek.

While little of the area was actually flooded when Norris Dam was built, TVA purchased a few lots near the river which are still owned by the utility. TVA produced a series of what they call Stage D maps of the area and the landowners they bought out. The maps can be purchased on TVA's site, and detailed maps of each individual lot can also be purchased through that site.
