Stong Building - Chattanooga

This flatiron shaped building is next door to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo at the corner of Market and 14th and was operated as the Terminal Hotel to serve reailroad passengers until 1930. The Hotel was operated by Chester Davis who worked at the Choo-Choo termial as a porter and then saved his tip money to purchase this building.

The building was vacated in the 80's and looked ready for demolition until it was purchased in 2006. The new owners in 2009 opened this as the Terminal Brewhouse. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and had been on the Tennessee Preservation Trust’s Top 10 list of endangered buildings.
