Why you'd want to live in St. Elmo
It is one of the earliest suburbs constructed in the community. This resulted from a yellow fever outbreak in the late 1800s, pushing wealthier residents to nestle into the streets bordering the foot of Lookout Mountain. This area is one of the best examples of Victorian and bungalow architecture in the city and oozes the yesteryear charm with wraparound porches, large shade trees, and sidewalks. Saint Elmo is also close to the South Chattanooga Complex (link), which includes an indoor pool, gym, computer lab, outdoor walking track, ballfield, and arts center. Saint Elmo is fairly walkable and includes restaurants such as Mr. T’s, The Purple Daisy, and 1885.
