Whiteside (formerly Aetna, Etna and Running Water) is an unincorporated community in Marion County, Tennessee,[1] named after James Anderson Whiteside (1803-1861), attorney, Chattanooga railroad promoter and land investor. It lies at an elevation of 807 feet (246 m).


For the decade preceding his death in 1792, Dragging Canoe lived at Running Water, a Chickamauga Cherokee town. Railroad tracks, Whiteside train tunnel and Whiteside trestle 1863 make Whiteside a significant location in the passage through the Tennessee River valley from Chattanooga to points west.
