Sam Hall’s

The best visual resource and online reference material for Chattanooga history.

“This website was first launched in 2014 as ‘DeepZoomChattanooga’ as it focused on high-resolution photos from the past. In 2019 the domain name was changed to better represent the expanding content.

Chattanooga, Tennessee is the largest mid-sized city in the United States without a local history museum.* The reasons are complicated but are not for a lack of public interest. This site is maintained to serve as a place to share unique historical photos, as well as provide resources not easily available in the research of area history.”

Sam Hall is a friend, brother, and colleague. He’s also a meticulous local historian worthy of the title of “Chattanooga’s Historian of the Year,” every year… if there was such a title.
