Close to Gatlinburg and nice area of GSM, amazing how hard it must have been living during that time. GSM National Park has some great old churched and homesteads.

We love to walk in this area in the spring especially if we have visitors who prefer a short walk to a hike.

This small little cabin in the middle of town was an afterthought as we walked from our hotel. There is so much history in such a small space and the lady that was there was very knowledgeable even though she had just started helping there.

Just a nice ride in the mountains and interesting to see the historical cabin. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip.

The cabin is a great photo op. We stop almost every time we are in the area. The parking lot is not too crowded like some of the others.

Viewing the design and construction of a cabin that is 100+ years old was a great experience for me. It doesn't take much imagination to see the amount of time and effort it must have taken to build this homestead. 2 rooms and a fireplace with a rock chimney 20' in the air and a barn. Who knows how long... More

I was very disappointed all I saw was a very small and simple log cabin. There's not much to do it took me about two minutes to finish. It is cool that it was the first building built in Gatlinburg. But it was not worth the walk. Very disappointed to not come.

Husband and I visited this historic site while in Gatlinburg. It is free to tour the cabin, and the docent was very knowledgable. The tour only takes a few minutes, but you can spend as much tinme as you want looking at all the antiques. Very interesting. Note that this is adjacent to a studio that features artist crafts that... More

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
