The Fort Wood National Historic District is a historic neighborhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is located just east of the UT Chattanooga campus, bounded roughly by Palmetto St., McCallie Av., E. 4th St. and O'Neal St.


By the early 1980s, efforts were underway restore the Warner House, at the corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets. Within a decade, the city council had given the Fort Wood area statutory 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. One reason for this demand may be attributed to UTC's strict alcohol free policy. Fort Wood's historic preservation is ongoing and land values are rising.

There’s nothing like living in a wooded area in Downtown. Being right next to the university and the atmosphere that comes with it is priceless.
