Chattanooga, Tennessee: Downtown

Chattanooga's Downtown is located along the banks of the Tennessee River, east of Moccasin Bend. The Downtown area is near the site of Ross's Landing, and Chattanooga grew into a small river port. Later, the vicinity became the northern terminus of the Western & Atlantic Railroad, which connected with Atlanta (then called "Terminus", later "Marthasville"). This railroad terminus was the beginning of Chattanooga's rich railroad history, including a Civil War battles in the area over these railroads.

Looking down Georgia Avenue at Chattanooga's Flatiron Building. The wedge corner of the building is to the left, where Georgia Avenue and Walnut Street intersect.

Buildings on Walnut Street.

The Angus Cafe, at 7th & Cherry Streets. The SunTrust Bank Building is in the background.

Looking west down 7th Street. The Republic Centre, Chattanooga's tallest building at 300 feet, is in the background.

Looking up Broad Street at the Tivoli Theatre. The Tivoli Theatre was built in 1921 and was once called "the Jewel of the South". Considered by many to easily be the nicest theatre in Tennessee, it had a domed ceiling in the lobby and was one of the first buildings in Tennessee to be air-conditioned. The theatre now houses the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera. The entrance to the Maclellan Building, built in 1924, is in the foreground.

Looking up Broad Street, with the entrances to the James Building, the Maclellan Building, and Tivoli Theatre on the western side of the street.

Buildings on Market Street. The SunTrust Bank Building is in the background, across 8th Street, and infill, incorporatig part of an old facade at the street corner, is in the foreground.

Looking at the Dome Building from 9th Street.

Looking west down 7th Street.
