Central of Georgia Railway
Chickamauga Area - 1917

The branch line to Durham, high atop Lookout Mountain to the west, departed the main line at the town of Chickamauga. It was built as the Chickamauga & Durham Railroad in the early 1890s. In the center of the map, coke ovens are indicated at the end of a long rail spur. Many of these still exist and can be seen in the city's Coke Ovens Park.
