Signal Mountain

Natural, Scenic Surroundings

Located on Walden Ridge, Signal Mountain blends all the benefits of mountain living with quality schools, top-notch medical care, and diverse housing options.

 

Everything from stately brick residences and charming bungalows to log cabins on wooded lots can be found atop Signal Mountain, where real estate is as diverse as the people who call this community home. Dating back to the early 20th century, the Signal Mountain Historic District is filled with elegant period homes set along tree-lined streets. Grandview, St. Ives, Hidden Brook, Fox Run, Carriage Hill, Raptors Roost, and Boulder Point are just a few of the notable neighborhoods in the area. With stylish home designs and spacious lots, sought-after developments such as Flipper Bend, Signal Forest, The Cove at Signal Forest, Wild Ridge, and GreyHawk Trails attract homeowners from every stage of life. 

Residents can make a quick commute down the mountain to access leading employers such as BlueCross BlueShield, Unum, TVA, EPB, and Cigna, as well as Parkridge, Erlanger, and CHI Memorial hospitals. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and city and county governments are also close by.

Signal Mountain is conveniently located near downtown Chattanooga as well as thoroughfares that lead to the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, Nashville, Knoxville, Atlanta, and Birmingham. Taft Highway and Roberts Mill Road connect to Highway 27, which extends to I-75 and I-24.

Public elementary schools include Thrasher Elementary and Nolan Elementary, with Signal Mountain Middle/High School serving older students. Signal Mountain Christian School is a private school for grades K-5. There is also a homeschool organization on the mountain. See the red pins on the map below.

Family medical, dental, and pharmaceutical care services operate on Signal Mountain, while major hospitals, including CHI Memorial, Erlanger, and Parkridge, are a short drive away. Ascension Living Alexian Village, a nationally recognized retirement community on the mountain, offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, and rehabilitation and therapy. See the blue pins on the map below.

With traditional and specialty grocery items as well as a deli, bakery, and café, Pruett’s Market is a popular one-stop shop located on Taft Highway. Fairmount Orchard is open seasonally and sells fresh apples, jams and jellies, homemade cider, and more. At the base of Signal Mountain, residents can quickly access Food City, ALDI, and Walmart Supercenter. See the green pins on the map below. 

At the heart of Signal Mountain’s arts scene is the Mountain Arts Community Center (MACC), which is dedicated to visual, musical, and theatre arts programs. Thanks to the MACC, residents have access to a variety of classes, including ballet, yoga, guitar, painting, and improv. More programs and art classes are offered at the Bachman Community Center. Since 1972, the Signal Mountain Playhouse has been putting on a summer and winter theatrical production every year, and once a month, The Mountain Opry hosts a bluegrass performance for the community to enjoy.

Situated on the Tennessee River Gorge, Prentice Cooper State Forest boasts nearly 25,000 acres with 35 miles of hiking trails, two campsites, and a shooting range. Among the most popular trails is the Cumberland Trail, which starts at Signal Mountain’s Signal Point and features multiple overlooks, striking rock formations, and the historic Rainbow Falls. 

The mountain landscape makes an ideal backdrop for the Pumpkin Patch, an all-wood playground that encourages children to explore in the great outdoors; here, you’ll find equipment for climbing, slides, and a covered pavilion. Located behind the Signal Mountain Golf & Country Club, Althaus Park is another outdoor destination for families.

Local and chain restaurants are available atop the mountain. Signal Mountain Golf & Country Club is home to 18 holes of championship golf, a heated pool, fine dining, and more. Additionally, the town of Signal Mountain oversees numerous recreational opportunities ranging from baseball and basketball to gymnastics, swimming, and lacrosse.
