The History Makers Annual luncheon recognized a prominent local family name Wednesday.

The Chattanooga History Center honored the McCallie family legacy.

It's the 8th year the award has been given.  

The award recognizes local individuals or groups that made significant contributions to Chattanooga, the state, or even the country.

The McCallie family has been in the area since the mid 1800s.

Along with other notable contributions, McCallie family members built schools and hospitals.
