Candy Flats Flint Bed

Candy Flats Flint Bed

In the old days, many arrowheads were found near Candy Flats. It is thought that, perhaps, the Native Americans “manufactured” them here. In another time, this area was a great battlefield, significant in the fight between North and South. Today, however, it serves a purpose with more pleasant appeal – that of scenery.

“A little trail bears the name of Ellsworth Brown, a Chattanoogan of great botanic learning and historian of constant help. He told me of the fragments of arrow flint near the northwest corner of Candy Flats, an indication of a factory, and Mrs. Chambliss and I went immediately and found quite a lot.”
