A Ministry Serving All Faiths

Alexian Village of Tennessee is a non-profit ministry of the Alexian Brothers, a world-wide Catholic order with more than 800 years of service to the elderly, the poor, the ill and the infirm.

Alexian Village of Tennessee came to be after the Brothers acquired the historic Signal Mountain Inn with the intention of using the pastoral site as a retreat and training center.

Alexian Inn

The Inn, located in the charming community of Signal Mountain, Tennessee about five miles from Chattanooga, was once a popular vacation destination for sophisticated travelers seeking to escape the summer heat. The Inn even had its own cable car that brought guests to its large front porch for a stay that featured beautiful sunsets, walks along wooded paths, and swimming in mountain lakes and streams.

After taking possession of the Inn in 1936, the Brothers began to feel their gem in the mountains was too precious not to share. They opened their doors first to elderly, frail men in need of a place live.

Over time the ministry grew to more residents and more services. Then in 1979 the Brothers broke ground for Alexian Village of Tennessee, which now supports a full-spectrum of retirement living resources and serves about 500 men and women of all faiths.

Today the original Inn is the comfortable 33-room supportive living center. The Alexian Brothers still maintain a residence on the mountain, however, and work to support the quality of life that is uniquely Alexian Village.

The Alexian Brothers Worldwide Headquarters and Generalate, which oversees the Brothers international ministries is also located on the mountain.
