Fort Oglethorpe

Why you'd want to live in Fort Oglethorpe

Fort Oglethorpe is in Georgia on the Tennessee border and is filled with established neighborhoods, history, and rich Southern culture. The town is linked tightly to the Chickamauga Battlefield, one of the Civil War’s bloodiest sites. Today, it is a nature park with miles of trails for biking, jogging, and horseback riding. Despite a sprucing up its gruesome past, many ghost hunters come through in search of “Old Green Eyes.” This local legend inspired Wings to the Kingdom, a supernatural novel written by local author Cherie Priest. Fort Oglethorpe was officially disbanded as a military outpost in 1949, and many buildings belong to the national historic register. This led to the area’s development, and the local economy was revived again after a long-running slump with the arrival of Costco. Aside from the traffic on Battlefield Parkway, the city is quiet in comparison to other areas and consists of workforce aged employees, young families, and seniors. If you are considering purchasing a home in this area, you will find many smaller midcentury homes and ranchers great for starting out or downsizing. There are several new construction options as well, including developments like Lakeshore Cove, Marie Estates, and Heritage Woods. Also, this area is a great option for anyone seeking Georgia amenities with a short commute to Chattanooga via East Ridge. If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy the quiet without being too far away from the pulse of the big city, then Fort Oglethorpe may be a good choice for you.
