Completed in 1890, the Walnut Street Bridge provided a convenient connection between a growing neighborhood, Hill City, and the commercial district downtown. Today it serves as a pedestrian bridge and unifies the parks along the Tennessee Riverfront. Join us as we explore previous efforts to connect communities across the Tennessee River, how the bridge came to be, and how Chattanoogans saved it from destruction.
