A Brief History of the Fort Campbell Real Estate MarketFort Campbell's history can be traced back to 1941 when the U.S. Army transferred its first troops to the area's original campsite. Named after Union Brig. Gen. William Bowen Campbell, it was used during World War II as a training facility for the U.S. Army's 12th and 14th Armored Divisions and for its 26th Infantry Division.
As a result, the first Fort Campbell homes for sale were constructed near the original campsite. They featured basic floor plans and amenities that were designed to meet the needs of troops who were training to go overseas. Some of these homes are still standing near many modern high-quality Fort Campbell homes for sale that are a wonderful value.
Demand for Fort Campbell homes has continued to increase since the end of World II. Much of this increase can be attributed to Fort Campbell's expanded role as a training site for U.S. Army and Air Force personnel. Moreover, many civilians contributed to the increase in the demand for Fort Campbell-area homes during the 1960s and 1970s after discovering the value of the area's well-maintained neighborhoods and useful amenities. This demand is expected to continue to increase in the future as more military personnel and civilians discover the value of living near Fort Campbell.
