Chickamauga

Why you'd want to live in Chickamauga

If you are looking for a quiet locale to call your home without being too far from the culture and hustle of Chattanooga, then Chickamauga may be an option for you as a home buyer. The town offers plenty of housing options—ranging from starter homes for first time buyers to high end equestrian farms. The downtown area is fairly walkable and offers family friendly recreation. Chickamauga is also home to Gordon Lee High School, offering free tuition to anyone living within the town’s city limits. The town carries an extensive historical influence in the Greater Chattanooga Area, and continues to be a popular area for home buyers opting to live in Georgia over Tennessee. Chickamauga has a sizeable picturesque historic district, which contains several antebellum mansions. The famous Gordon Lee mansion was constructed in 1847, and served as a headquarters to General Rosecran and as housing Union soldiers. Today, the estate serves as a museum and locale for many of the local festivals and events. The downtown area was revamped to resemble an early 1900’s streetscape, sporting a number of boutique shops, sidewalk lined streets, and affordable turn of the century homes comparable to finds in Chattanooga areas like Highland Park and St. Elmo. Aside from its war-torn history, the area retains its natural beauty from the surrounding valleys and mountainsides and small town charm. Chickamauga is easily accessible to Chattanooga via Hwy 193, which runs through the Chattanooga Valley and (Flintstone) area, which is bordered by the city’s western outskirts along Lookout Mountain. This area also contains High Point Golf Course, with popular newer subdivisions dotting the valleys for house hunters wanting more modern home features. Other popular starter homes can be found in the areas around North Marbletop Rd and areas closer to the Hwy 27 bypass, which is more accessible to other surrounding areas like Ringgold and Chattanooga suburbs.
