Still there


Passed on our way to the hotel.

Saw this flagpole on the bank building while caching in the area.


Yup -- The old building is still there under the ugly 1950s-modern skin

Found it 6/2/17 at 4:24p.


Found it.

Discovered on what is now the First Tennessee Bank with the magtplanner crew while visiting Chattanooga for Thanksgiving weekend .


just curious if anyone has information that this flagpole is in same location as observed in 1934...............bldg was renovated in 1966 ??

Found the Benchmark while visiting Chattanooga.


Found while visiting and caching for the day.

Yet another sight that I have drove by many times and never knew it was a BM

See it every day. I'll post if it's ever destroyed.

See it daily, now I know it's a benchmark!

Was thinking about the wrong building but then got back on the right track.

found on a nice trip to the choo-choo, but we have seen it many times and didn't know it was a benchmark.

I see this thing every day while working. I just saw it this morning!

Stealth Trip #12.

Observed the flagpole on the First Tennessee Bank Building.

Smiley for me

Logged this one while downtown today.


Another site with a new name and an old flag--but Pete Fitsgerald's photo rocks.

Recovered. The building is now the First Tennessee Bank Building. The coordinates were taken at the corner of 7th and Market Streets. The photo was taken from Broad Street looking South. The First Tennessee Bank insignia and flagpole are visible in the photo.


Had to talk security and maintanence into letting me on the roof. Didn't find a marker disk but did photograph the flagpole. I hope that counts.
