Mayor's Mansion Inn was created and built in the years after the scourge of the Civil War. This beautiful mansion, now a Bed & Breakfast Inn, is located in the historic Fort Wood district next to downtown Chattanooga. In recent years the city's Victorian architecture has succumbed to more modern architectural elements. Fort Wood is, however, one of the few areas that escaped this modernism and to this day remains as one of the city's best collections of Victorian homes. Among the different styles of homes in the neighborhood, the Mayor's Mansion Inn is the only house clearly Victorian Romanesque. The stone surface, arches, decorative tiles, and stone trim make this building very distinctive in the district and in the city. Nestled in the Fort Wood Historic District, the Inn is conveniently located to all of Chattanooga's Downtown attractions including the Historic Art District, the Tennessee River and the Tennessee Aquarium. Guests can enjoy a peaceful stay while taking in all the sights the beautiful and scenic city of Chattanooga has to offer. Mayor's Mansion Inn Bed and Breakfast built in 1889, was home to Edmond G. Watkins, who later became the Mayor of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Now serving Chattanooga and located in the Fort Wood Historic District, the Mayor's Mansion Inn Bed and Breakfast is truly dedicated to making your stay in Tennessee as unforgettable as your Chattanooga surroundings.
