About Tennessee



Tennesee has more than 200,000 horses, and 3.2 million acres of the State's 10 billion farm acres are devoted to the horse industry. That's 30 percent of the land - a huge tax base -- but it also represents a great number of people involved in the horse industry.

While Tennessee is probably best known for its namesake Tennessee Walking Horses, the State is also well known within the equine industry for mules. In fact, Maury County is considered the "Mule Capital of the World," and is the site of Mule Day, a 170-year tradition.

Bedford County tops the state with the highest number of horses and ponies, while Wilson County has the highest number of mules, burros and donkeys.

The state has more than 50 equine trails, which have become huge tourism draws.

Tennessee is divided into three regions and each region is known for its distinctive musical heritage: Bluegrass (Eastern), Country-Western (Central), and Blues (Western).

Middle Tennessee is the State's most prosperous area, with cities such as Nashville, against a backdrop of rolling hills. "Land and real estate here in Middle Tennessee is selling and bringing good prices. We are very blessed to be in this part of the country where growth is still happening and people want to live here," says Tad Craig with Craig and Wheeler Realty in Shelbyville. "We were just solid and steady."

Western Tennessee is bordered by the Mississippi River, which is generally considered the extreme northern boundary of Mississippi Delta cultural influence. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a World Heritage Biosphere Reserve and draws millions of visitors from around the region and the world annually. Covering nearly 1,000 square miles, it is home to temperate rainforests and some of the rarest and most unique plant life in North America.

Beautiful Property situated on 6 acres with lots of privacy

Signal Mountain, Hamilton County, Tennessee

Follow the 3000 ft private gated drive to 8999 Big Bend Road which is perched atop North Chickamauga Creek otherwise known as the ''pocket wilderness'' where colorful kayaks glide silently through the whitewater after a good rain. The stunning sunsets are natural with no other residents in view. Much of the surrounding property is TDEC (state owned land) ensuring quiet and privacy rarely found in Hamilton County. Step out on a cool morning and hike over hundreds of acres of state land or quietly view the abundant turkey and white-tailed deer. The 4500 sf main home is situated on a nicely flat portion of the 6 acre grounds. Many visitors liken the property to a bird sanctuary where huge beds of wildflowers bloom from spring to fall and countless hydrangeas burst with color throughout t summer months. Hear the rooster crow and the blue bird houses chirp with offspring as you walk the property to the 50 by 60 high fence organic garden. Half of the garden is dedicated to hundreds of daylilly ready to be divided and shared. Built in 1995/96 by a prominent Chattanooga business man who had access to gorgeous heart pine that was used for wainscoting and to decorate the walls of the sitting room where a masonry fireplace is found. The great room as well as several other rooms are wrapped in 8, 10 and 12 inch beautifully pickled ship lap pine. Seven skylights elluminate portions of the downstairs living area. The laundry room, great room, kitchen and all bedrooms provide breathtaking views of the gorge. Of course there is a huge deck overlooking the gorge. The current owners have welcomed many for graduation photos, wedding photos and bon fires. On several occasions blue grass music has accompanied BBQ and friends. Also found just feet away from the home is a guest house / cabin build several years ago. All of the wood exterior and ship lap interior were sourced at family owned Cline Lumber in North Georgia. The cabin also enjoys the gorgeous views from a large wrap around deck. Full bath and kitchen allow for guest privacy. This property is truly unique to Hamilton County. Acreage, privacy, miles of uninterrupted natural views as well as the surrounding TDEC state land for hiking are found nowhere else. Only your eyes can fill in the rest of the setting. Photos are great but a visit to this once in a lifetime opportunity is a must.
