Tennessee's Dixie Highway: Springfield To Chattanooga (Images Of America)

The late-19th- and early-20th-century vision of the New South relied upon economic growth and access. The development of the Dixie Highway from 1914 to 1927―with its eastern and western branches running from Ontario, Canada, south to Miami, Florida―would help facilitate this dream attracting industry, tourists, and even new residents. Images of America: Tennessee’s Dixie Highway: Springfield to Chattanooga tells the story of people, places, politics, and organizations behind the construction of the road from Springfield, Tennessee, to Chattanooga. This section is particularly important, as it was roughly the halfway point of the route and contained the headquarters of the Dixie Highway Association in Chattanooga. It also included the seemingly insurmountable Monteagle Mountain in Marion County―the very last portion of the national north-south highway to be completed.

I don't know of another book of this type. Lots of pictures and good information about what it took to build the Dixie Hwy.

Lots of pictures, but very little text. Not much in the way of maps
