Whiteside (formerly Aetna, Etna and Running Water) is an unincorporated community in Marion County, Tennessee, named after James Anderson Whiteside (1803–1861), attorney, Chattanooga railroad promoter and land investor. It lies at an elevation of 807 feet (246 m). Whiteside is situated along State Route 134 between Chattanooga and Haletown, just north of the Tennessee-Georgia state line.
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.
