The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency dedicated Tennessee's newest wildlife management area in Roane County this week.

A ceremony was held to recognize Gerald Largen for his gift of this property to TWRA and the people of Tennessee.

Located on Bowman's Bend Road near Harriman, the 112-acre piece of property, to be called the McGlothin-Largen Wildlife Management Area, has more than a mile of lake frontage.

A plaque of appreciation was presented to Gerald Largen by TWRA Executive Director Ed Carter in memory of his mother, Martha McGlothin-Largen, and his father, John Roy Largen.

TWRA has plans to build a fishing pier at the location and open the area to limited hunting and wildlife viewing.
