Shady Valley School


Another of the stylish WPA-built schools.  Built in 1936 out of local materials.  It’s located about 1/3 mile up 133 from the intersection with 34 (where all the bikers gas up and have a nosh before they hurtle down The Snake).

While We’re in Shady Valley

In Shady Valley, at the intersection of 91/133 and 34, there’s a restaurant/convenience store/gas station that’s popular with the men and women who enjoy biking “The Snake”, a series of tight curves on 91 between Elizabethton and Shady Valley.  These pumps reference that, including renaming the gas types.
