2017 // Apison


Did You Know?
The Tennessee Department of Transportation is in the process of creating a large 4 lane extension with bike paths from I-75 right into the heart of Apison. The extension will provide Apison residents easy access to employers, shopping, and other popular amenities.



Bordering Georgia, Ooltewah, and Collegedale, residents of Apison benefit from nearby city amenities but enjoy the country charm that Apison provides.

Real Estate: Apison offers both beautiful country homes and newly developed subdivisions, both perfect for families. Communities like Crystal Brook, Bentwood Cove, Maple Grove, Hawks Landing, McDonald Trace, Whispering Oaks, Hope Ranch Estates, and Prairie Pass feature beautifully crafted single-family homes with a wide range of architectural styles and floor plans.

Top Employers: Just 15 minutes from the city’s limits is Enterprise South Industrial Park, which is home to Volkswagen, auto manufacturing suppliers, FedEx distribution center, and Amazon’s fulfillment center.  McKee Foods Corporation and Southern Adventist University, both located in Collegedale, are large employers in the area as well.

Transportation: Not far from I-75 and major interstates that connect to it, residents of Apison have easy access to Hamilton Place Mall, downtown Chattanooga, and major cities just two hours away: Knoxville, Atlanta, Nashville, and Birmingham. The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport is less than 15 miles from Apison. Additionally, nearby Collegedale Municipal Airport hosts private and business aviation.

Education: Apison students attend Apison Elementary School, Ooltewah Middle and High Schools, and East Hamilton Middle and High Schools. Private schools close by include Lester Coon Adventist School, Standifer Gap SDA School, A.W. Spalding Elementary, Collegedale Adventist Middle School, and Collegedale Academy.

Health and Wellness: Pharmacies, family medical and dental care, and urgent care facilities are all located nearby. Larger medical facilities are also easy to reach. Among those are Tennova Primary Care – Ooltewah, CHI Memorial Medical Plaza – Ooltewah, Erlanger East in East Brainerd, Parkridge East Hospital in East Ridge, and the Parkridge Valley campuses in East Brainerd.
