Much like many of the towns in the south, Signal Mountain has a very rich history. Before colonization, Signal Mountain was used by Native Americans to quite literally send smoke signals across the valley. Later on, the Union Army used the same point in Signal Mountain as a place of communication. After the war, there were only a few families living in the area due to many health epidemics.
Since then, the town has become one of the best places to raise a family according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The town's rich history is something that all its inhabitants know. However, many residents also choose to focus on the future. Signal Mountain has an abundance of attractions for locals and tourists. In addition to natural and commercial attractions, the city has many outdoor events for humans and dogs throughout the year.
