From traditional brick homes to modern condos and even wood cabins, Signal Mountain is located on Walden Ridge and truly has something for everyone. The Signal Mountain Historic District dates back to the early 20th century and is reflected in the district’s period homes and summer cottages. Notable neighborhoods in the area include Grandview, St. Ives, Hidden Brook, Fox Run, Boulder Point, Carriage Hill, and Raptors Roost. Newer developments include Wild Ridge, Signal Forest, The Cove at Signal Forest, GreyHawk Trails, and Union Stables. The 390-acre Flipper Bend subdivision, offering large wooded lots and luxury outdoor amenities, will continue development in 2020.
A quick trip down Signal Mountain will take you to large employers such as CHI Memorial, Erlanger, and Parkridge hospitals, as well as BlueCross BlueShield, TVA, Unum, EPB, Cigna, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and city and county governments.
