Work begins on new inn at Fall Creek Falls
A breathtaking state park just north of Chattanooga is hoping to draw even more visitors with a new inn.
Crews are building that inn at Fall Creek Falls State Park. The nearly 100,000 square foot space will cost about $30 million and will house a restaurant and convention center.
A demolition team leveled the old inn at that location, but park officials believe it's time for a change.
"Health and wellness opportunities for the locals as well as just an overwell better quality of life for all of them. Fifty-six state parks all over the state, all doing the same thing, making life better for Tennesseans," Deputy of Parks Brock Hill said.
Park officials expect the inn to bring in about $280,000 in sales and taxes each year.
Don't book your tickets just yet though. It won't be open until sometime in 2020.
