Had a neat visit here and enjoyed reading about the history of this place. Definitely worth a stop on your way to Wayah Bald. Take time to read the information - pretty interesting! Glad this has been preserved.

Stop and read about Wilson Lick on the way up to the Wayah Bald Lookout Tower. It is a great place to take some pictures. Beautiful, quiet serene area. We did hear some gunshots from local hunters, though. But they were nowhere close to us.

These people had to be tough to live here. Yes, it's beautiful but to get here on mule and wagon and then live yr around? They were made of something most of us don't have anymore. The house and barn are locked but they've held up well.

Stopped at Wilson's Lick on way to Wayah Bald. The information board is worth taking the time to read. What made this event more enjoyable was that I met a young lady in Jer's Restaurant whose great aunt and uncle were born there.

A quaint piece of our history that will take you back in time to see how Forest Rangers lived, survived and worked at the turn of the last century. Be sure to drive on up to Wayah Bald. The view is outstanding and an easy paved walk to the tower. As stunning as Clingman's Dome or other peak in the... More

The photography of your pictures will be beautiful taken from this house. The history & stories of what this house held in those days and sacrificies those individuals must have endured during those days. Facisinating
