Long Description:
This is the only depot between Atlanta and Chattanooga that has been in continuous use since May 1850. Ringgold was actually a larger market than Chattanooga in the 1850s. The depot was damaged during the Civil War by Hooker’s guns during the battle at Ringgold Gap which is a short distance away.
