By the beginning of the 20th century, passenger trains overwhelmed Chattanoogas two railroad depots and a larger station was needed. The solution was Terminal Station, which rivaled most Southern depots in size, expense, and aesthetic beauty. Providing transportation to cities throughout the country, the terminal made its mark as the gateway for rail from the agricultural south to the industrial north. Following its closure, the terminal was reopened as a renowned hotel and entertainment complex in 1973, becoming one of Chattanoogas many exciting attractions.

Images of Rail: Chattanoogas Terminal Station follows the history of this depot in both stories and photographs.
