Widely known as “The Scenic City,” Chattanooga owes this distinction to its geologic setting. The city lies along the Tennessee River, among the valleys and ridges of the southern Appalachian fold-and-thrust belt, and within view of the Cumberland Plateau and Blue Ridge. Its name derives from “cató,” the Muskogean word for “rock,” giving due emphasis to the geology of the area and the ideal setting it provides for this meeting. While the geologic setting of Chattanooga is outstanding, the Chattanooga story is equally impressive.
From its beginnings as Ross’s Landing to its early history as a rail town, to its role in the Civil War, and the industrial city it was during 1900s, Chattanooga has transformed into a progressive community that now boasts the fastest Internet in America and thrives on tourism. If you have not been to Chattanooga lately, now is your chance to experience our beautiful city.
