Walden's Ridge and the "W" Road
From a Picture Post Card 1907

The "W", Walden's Ridge
Walden's Ridge is the table-land of the East Cumberland, which rises gradually between the valleys of the Sequatchie and the Tennessee. The "W" on the Ridge was erected about 1898, when the county constructed a magnificent boulevard, 12 miles in length from the city to the brow of the mountain.
