Sale Creek is a small unincorporated community in northern Hamilton County, Tennessee, United States. Sale Creek is home to Sale Creek High School, as well as the "haunted" Shipley Hollow Road. Sale Creek was also home to northern troops in 1863. It was the HQ of the 6th Regt. Tennessee Volunteers. The community takes its name from the creek which runs through it, which in turn got its name from the auction at the site of the goods and arms taken from the eleven towns of the militant Cherokee in the region before they were burned during the raid of Evan Shelby's troops in 1779, during the Chickamauga wars. It is part of the Chattanooga, TN–GA Metropolitan Statistical Area.
