The residents of The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga got to experience a piece of Chattanooga’s train history with a scenic train ride through Missionary Ridge, courtesy of the Tennessee Valley Railroad.
"Since the Western and Atlantic Railroad first came to Chattanooga in 1850, trains have been an important aspect of the city’s economy and history," officials said. "Even after cars and airplanes became the preferred methods of travel, Chattanooga retained its reputation as a railroad city."
“Chattanooga Lantern residents enjoyed a beautiful fall train ride through Missionary Ridge on the Tennessee Valley Railroad,” says Danielle Nelson, the Lantern program director at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga.
“It was fun to have some family members along for the ride, too.”
