Signal Mountain Historic District
Signal Mountain Historic DistrictThe Signal Mountain Historic District is a residential district located on the southern end of Signal Mountain, Tennessee. It is an excellent example of an early twentieth century upper middle class suburban neighborhood. The area was planned and developed primarily during 1 and clearly demonstrates the evolution from 1910s and early 1920s dwellings, which retain an emphasis on historical architectural detailing, to the larger dwellings of the 1930s and 1940s. The larger houses stand on sizeable, irregular lots with detached garages, many with spare rooms above the garages for servant's quarters. With the first phase of the subdivision's development, c. 1910 - 1930, one sees homes managed entirely by the family rather than homes built with domestic assistance in mind. Some of the first development in the area was for vacation cottages. The houses built later and for year-round residency reflect the social standing of their upper middle class families.
