Flying Saucer House

This house is on Signal Road, about halfway up the mountain in one of the switchback curves. An elderly couple has owned and lived in the house for as long as i know. the house is shaped like a "UFO" and rests on six "legs". The couple parks their van underneath the house and go up stairs that protrude from the bottom, like what you see on TV. The house is particularly odd, due to it being located in one of the most affluent areas in the Chattanooga area.

UFO House. Flying Saucer House

I snapped a pic of the "flying saucer house" mentioned in the TN archives. For a UFO house - it's pretty neat (and big)!

Flying Saucer House

The Flying Saucer. This is a home shaped like a white flying saucer made of concrete. It's on the road going up the hill that leads from Chattanooga to Signal Mountain. It's a startling thing to see.

Also--I was recently driving through NW S.C. on the way from Augusta to the interstate. In a county seat I passed through somebody had a locomotive engine and two passenger cars in the yard beside their house. . .
