Where Living Comes Naturally.™
The valley in which Black Creek rests has been a natural place to call home since human beings first came upon it. Situated near the opening of the “Grand Canyon of the Tennessee River,” and well above the floods that often inundated the Chattanooga Valley, ancient Native Americans lived on this land for thousands of years. The lush and verdant upland valley between Raccoon and Lookout Mountains had, and still has, abundant wildlife, water and wide-open spaces. It was a natural place for Union troops to prepare for the assault on Lookout Mountain during the Civil War and became the home to one of Tennessee’s most powerful men, Judge Will Cummings, during the early 20th century.
It was the friendship between Franklin Roosevelt and Will Cummings that made the Cummings farm a frequent stop on the President’s trips to Warm Springs, GA, to treat his polio. It was here that the initial plans for the Tennessee Valley Authority were conceived. It’s also the place, according to legend, that Eleanor Roosevelt convinced Judge Cummings to introduce kudzu to the Southeast.
Today, Black Creek spans some 3,000 acres and is home to many, from the valley to the mountainside. Six breathtaking miles of hillside panorama just above downtown Chattanooga encompasses the fertile valley west of Lookout Mountain.
Chattanooga sits just a couple of hours away from this area’s popular and exciting cities, including Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, and Knoxville. And, the “Scenic City” offers plenty of outdoor activities and stunning vistas.
You’ll find miles of paved bicycle and pedestrian trails, as well as adventurous and maintained mountain biking trails. If you’re a rock climber, you’ve come to the perfect place. There’s also world-class hang gliding, exceptional bass and trout fishing, hiking, and picnicking on thousands of acres of US Park Service and privately conserved lands.
