Harriman Mayor Wayne Best announced today approximately 13 acres have been donated to the City of Harriman for eventual use as city park facilities.
“I am thrilled to accept this wonderful gift from the Liff and Baisley Families in honor and memory of Albert Baisley. Albert Baisley deserves this recognition as he contributed so much towards making life better for so many folks in the Harriman and throughout Roane County,” said Mayor Best.
Baisley’s accomplishments in business include founding Rockwood Iron and Metal, the Scientific Ecology Group in Oak Ridge, Diversified Scientific Services in Kingston, Tennessee Valley Steel in Harriman, and Southern Alloys and Metals of Rockwood. Over the past five decades, his businesses have provided thousands of jobs in the area.
The donated property is approximately 13 acres located on Margrave Drive in Harriman and is contiguous to other properties owned by the city.
