As it was 150 years ago, Ross's Landing is once more the center of attention in the community more commonly known by the name Chattanooga. The historical identity of the city is rooted in one particular place, a river crossing where two nations met early in the 19th century. Beginning in the late 1950s, the physical landscape of the city core has undergone radical transformations forever altering the appearance of the oldest parts of Chattanooga. Perhaps also lost amid modern demolition and construction is the memory of the cultural landscape of the last century.
