Point Park

Posted by on April 1, 2017
Established in 1905, Point Park is located in the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. It resides on top of Lookout Mountain, which is on the northwest corner of Georgia, the northeast corner of Alabama, and on the Tennessee state line.For many years two prominant vistas--Lookout Mountain and Umbrella Rock-- have been extremely popular. The first photo shows the Park entrance in 1907. The third photo shows a Union band on top of Lookout Mountain in 1864.
