Since the "Ogle" name kept popping up everywhere in the area we had to see this cabin which was in walking distance of our motel. This would have been just another mildly bit of history showing items that would have been used in the past, BUT there was a woman "living" in it that brought it to life. Wish I... More

It was amazing to look at such small cabins and to see how the people lived especially having large families. The beauty of the woods and the history of the Ogle family made this place worth visiting.

This is the first log cabin ever built in the Gatlinburg area. We found out that it is still standing because it is built from very rot-resistant trees. The woods and creek around the cabin are peaceful.

Enjoyed walking the grounds around this cabin and reading the history. So nice to be able to see pieces of the past preserved for future generations to appreciate. Lots of care has been taken to share it with the public.

This neat old cabin is hiding in plain sight right at the corner of Cherokee Orchard Rd & the Parkway next to the Arrowcraft Shop (across the street from the Aquarium & Subway restaurant). It is hidden behind a shield of large green trees. I cannot tell you how many times I walked right past this cabin without even realizing... More

We spent a lot of time trying to visit the historical sites, and when you walk in his cabin you are transported back 100+ years ago in 5 seconds. This guy spent so many years living in this cabin, never knowing my 3 year old son would be standing in his house whining about how bad he has to go... More

Been in this old house many times but still go back in when I'm walking through that end of town. Strange this old cabin is in the middle of bustling Gatlinburg. Sometimes there is someone from local Historical Society in there to answer questions and let you look through a big book of old black and white pictures of back... More

A historic place to visit. Quite and rustic, it makes you think how the settlers live back in time. We all enjoyed the visit at the Ogle Log Cabin a must see to those who like to learn and see history

Very nice exhibit. Wish I could go back in time. It's amazing how well the log homes were built and are still standing today. It did have a new Shake roof, but it was beautiful. Natural beauty.

I am a history buff & love going through old buildings & seeing how people in our past lived. It gives you a whole new appreciation of all our modern conveniences & makes you realize just how difficult it must have been just to get through a normal, everyday, day. No wonder our ancestor's got up at daybreak & went... More
