Long Description:

The Chattahoochee River


The longest river in Georgia, the Chattahoochee (Creek Indian for “painted rocks”) begins in the Georgia Mountains, flows 435 miles, and joins the Flint to form the Apalachicola, which empties into the Gulf of Mexico. The Western edge (high watermark) of the river forms the Georgia/Alabama border. Spanning the river here are the Central of Georgia Railroad trestle (1904) and the Dillingham Street bridge (1910 - 1912), an early reinforced concrete structure.
