On the eastern side on Chattanooga is Missionary Ridge. It is also an exclusive area with many luxurious homes that date back to the late 1800’s. Despite Missionary Ridge’s proximity to downtown, it is a very tranquil location set above the city with views to eastern and western sides of Chattanooga. It is also a historic civil war destination that marked the fall of the confederate army to the union army in Chattanooga. At the base of the ridge is McCallie High School, where many Missionary Ridge families send their children for a private middle and high school education. The homes range in price from $200,000 to $1,000,000+.
