Fascinating historic homestead close to downtown Gatlinburg... The Park Service has done a great job maintaining this gem of history. We were delighted to meet the local artist Randall Ogle working on a new painting while we were there. He is a direct descendant of the Ogle family who settled there and a very good artist. We bought several matted... More

They are going to move this from the present location to about a block away. Been past here many times and never knew about it until I saw it on Tripadvisor. This year had to stop by. Found the cabin very interesting as for seeing how people lived back in the days of the beginning of Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg and the... More

The cabin is located near the Subway store on main street. It is a great way to view life in this region at the turn of the century without having to hike a long way up rocky trails on the scenic drive. Furnished and in great shape. A nice gift shop beside it. There is a large parking area nearby.

Amazing to think about this part of history. The story behind the home is one that needs to be appreciated. We often need to be reminded of the way "life use to be". I enjoyed telling my daughter who is "12" about history and this was a great way to show her!

A great experience to stop at this location and see how the early settlers had to live. At the parking area a small pamphlet is sold for 50 cents which provides a self-guiding walking nature tour - very handy as you view each of the different locations on the farm. Early settlers used everything, nothing went to waste. They packed... More

We were there after a snowstorm and it was beautiful! If you are in to photography, this is a great stop in winter and I'm sure Fall, Spring, and Summer are great too. It's just the "shell" of the cabin, walls, and roof. No items inside but you are allowed to walk trough it. Neat cabin showing what it was... More

Unfortunately I am still on the mend from a broken foot. So I looked from the overlook as well as from the road. Thanks to all the great reviews I could picture what I missed on the inside. Definitely next trip I will be able to look forward to the hike as well.

There were quite a few people already running around the cabin and barn so we decided to walk the trail to the mill first. The sign says it's a 3/4 mile easy hike. This hike could be termed moderately easy but very rocky in a few places but felt more like a mile. There are a few great bridges across... More
