Rock City, official site here, is a roadside attraction, found near Chattanooga, Tennessee on Lookout Mountain.


Originally created as a rock garden by Garnet Carter and his wife Frieda, it was going to be named 'Fairyland,' and accordingly was filled with stone gnomes, wild flowers and famous fairytale characters.

The gardens still remain there and other popular attractions include the manmade waterfall 'High Falls of Lookout Mountain,' and 'Lovers Leap,' where legend has it that a Native American man was thrown off when it was discovered he was in love with a woman from a rival tribe.

There has been historical evidence found which suggests Native Americans did once inhabit 'Lookout Mountain.'
