All Aboard!

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Chattanooga, Tennessee already had its Choo Choo. Travel by rail, via trains and trolley cars, was both popular and necessary. In 1909 the new Terminal Station was opened to great fanfare. No one foresaw the impact automobiles and airplanes would have on domestic travel, nor the demise of their beloved trains.

In 1917 another Chattanooga icon, the MoonPie®, was born at the Chattanooga Bakery. As I pick the graham cracker crumbs off my shirt, I can tell you this famous Southern staple is not in decline.
