The Sprankle Building (also known by later names of The Pembroke and The Daylight Building) is now a 38- (formally 40) unit condominium in the adaptive reused building. Built in 1927, this building housed the initial offices of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Engineering Staff, Training, and Education programs, and Soil Erosion and Reforestation offices. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Daylight Building in 2009.
