Story of Pigeon River and Martha

The headwaters of the Pigeon River are located at Sam Knob on Black Mountain, at an elevation of approximately 6130 feet. Sam Knob is 30 miles south- west of Asheville, North Carolina. The river flows from Sam Knob north to Canton. Evergreen Paper Products, Inc. is  located on the river in Canton. The Pigeon River flows through the papermill at Canton and then along Interstate 40 for approximately 25 river miles to Waterville, and the Duke Energy Hydroelectric Dam.

The river takes its name from the Passenger Pigeon, an extinct bird whose migration route once included the river valley in North Carolina. The last Passenger Pigeon died at the Cincinnati Zoological Gardens in 1914. Her name was Martha, named after Martha Washington, the inaugural first lady of the United States. Today, Martha the Passenger Pigeon re- sides in taxidermized form at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

Pigeon River Recreation

Duke Energy and the 12 Hartford whitewater rafting companies work together to plan recreational water releases from the Waterville Dam for rafting. After passing through Hartford, the Pigeon flows through Denton (1,800 feet) and Newport (1,040 feet), Tennessee. The Pigeon empties into the French Broad River at an elevation of about 1,000 feet. Due to these elevational changes, the Pigeon River is divided into two regions or ecoregions; a high gradient stream from Sam Knob to around Denton, Tennessee and a low gradient stream from Newport, Tennessee to the French Broad River.
