On behalf of the Mayor and City Council, and all the citizens of our great little city, it is my pleasure to extend to you a warm welcome and introduction to the City of Chattahoochee. We are excited to present this hometown Web Site to you in our continuing effort to communicate effectively with the citizens of our community and to acquaint you with our city. We have what I feel is the greatest place on earth to live, even going so far as to be called the “Garden of Eden” by some. We welcome your visit and look forward to having you stop by, look us over, meet some of the worlds most friendly people, and then decide that you would like to become a part of our great little city, nestled along the Georgia border, the Apalachicola River and home of Lake Seminole, where fishing and water sports abound.
