We enjoyed our quick tour of this museum. It is right next to the Vistor's Center so made sense to swing by. These are authentic buildings that the Park Service brought from the GSMNP.

My wife and I were in the USA to visit our son and do some travelling. We found this exhibition fascinating and particularly liked the horseshoe hinges on the doors of the buildings.

We really enjoyed visiting these buildings. The walk from the center is not too long, the building are spaced far enough apart, and there are information signs along the way. I would highly recommend taking a couple minutes to visit.

The father in law wanted to see old buildings and look at how life would've been back in the day. Mountain Farm Museum, Mingus Mill & Cade's Cove gave him everything he was looking for.

This place reminds me of how my mom grew up on a farm. There were 12 children and they raised everything on their farm. Hard work everyday but you really enjoyed just the simple things in life.

Located just behind the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, and in a beautiful valley setting, it's a great place to stroll around and visits all the historic structures. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the scenery along the river.
