This afternoon, we went to Raccoon Mountain Caverns, which is located outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. As we were waiting for our tour to start, I had just happened to find this old cable car sitting off to the side next to a building where you can get yourself equipped for the Wild Tour. I don’t know anything about it, other than it’s been sitting there for a long time. The only thing I can figure is that the cable car used to go up the side of Raccoon Mountain to other attractions at some point in time.

This is the outside of the cable car that we had found near the main building which housed the entrance to Raccoon Caverns in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m not sure why this is still sitting there. Regrettably, even I thought this was an eyesore. I’d hate to know what its original color scheme used to be.

Hooker is apparently not a team player with Grant any more than he was with Rosecrans.


Honorable E. M. STANTON,

Secretary of War.
BRIDGEPORT, October 27, 1863-6.30 a.m.

Troops are now just moving out for Shellmound and Raccoon Mountain. No evidence to show that the rebels will oppose the undertaking. Hooker came here from Stevenson last night. He is in an unfortunate state of mind for one who has to co-operate, fault finding, criticizing, dissatisfied. No doubt the chaos of Rosecrans’ administration is as bad as he describes, but he is quite as truculent toward the plan he is now to execute as toward the importance and confusion of the old regime.

Outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee is a resort type area located near Lookout Mountain that’s called Raccoon Mountain. It features a cave, camping area, bike trails, gem panning, and go cart tracks. My family and I visited Raccoon Mountain Caverns today. We were pleasantly surprised by our discovery of this abandoned cable car that was near the building that housed the cave entrance. I don’t know anything about it, other than it’s been sitting there for a long time. The only thing I can figure is that the cable car used to go up the side of Raccoon Mountain to other attractions at some point in time.
