Located in the Nord-Rein Westphalen province of Germany, Hamm is Chattanooga's first Sister City - a partnership that was forged in 1977 through a common bond of enterprise. Dupont Chemical had large facilities in both Hamm and Chattanooga that made the partnership a natural fit. Although those factories have long been closed Chattanooga and Hamm have only strengthened their relationship through cultural and student exchanges.
