For several years, the building was inhabited by vagrants, Then in 1981, the building was purchased by CHA. At the time, it was sold basically for the price of the land. CHA’s goal was to help revitalize the neighborhood. Their plan was to turn it into 4 luxury apartments. This was one of four buildings purchased by CHA at the time for renovation. The current sellers purchased the building when each unit was considered individual condos. Now the building has 5 units instead of 4 units and each is now an apartment.


According to Wikipedia:

Fort Wood Historic District is a historic neighborhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is bounded roughly by Palmetto Street, McCallie Avenue, East 4th Street, and O’Neal Street, just east of the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. “

“A fortification during the Civil War, Fort Wood was constructed by Union Army in 1863. The National Park Service has placed several war-era cannons in the neighborhood.[1] In the 1880s, the fort and surrounding land was auctioned off. In time, Fort Wood became one of Chattanooga’s finest residential neighborhoods. Large, fashionable homes soon appeared in the Queen AnneTudor Revival, and Romanesque Revival styles.”

“Fort Wood’s revitalization began with the Warner House at the corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets. Also, the City Council gave the Fort Wood area statutory zoning protection and many more houses were under renovation. Today, many of the homes in Fort Wood have been converted into apartments. Indeed, student apartments in this area are highly sought after by UTC students who wish to live off, but close to, the campus.”

“On April 17, 1979, Fort Wood Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places.”
