|Our logo features the Market Street Bridge morphed into folded and faulted carbonate stratigraphy, the distinctive roofline of the Tennessee Aquarium, and the profile of Lookout Mountain.|
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.
