After the battles for Chattanooga, the Cravens family built the present dwelling; the original home was destroyed in the fighting. Cannon fire struck the house six times, but the family remained there until mid November of 1863. During the Battle of Lookout Mountain, Union Gen. Joseph Hooker’s troops attacked Confederates entrenched on the Cravens property. The Confederates resisted but eventually gave way and the house became a headquarters for Gen. W. C. Whitaker. After the fighting was over, the family returned to find their home in ruins. They built this new house and began putting the pieces of their lives back together.
