Lookout Mountain perches atop a mountain that has been a faithful landmark in a constantly changing world. Until the mid-1800s, its Native American inhabitants called the mountain 'Chatanuga," a Cherokee word which means 'mountains looking at each other'. Also, fittingly, the early pioneers warned each other to "look out" for warring Indians and marauding pirates as they traversed the rapids below the mountain.
