No wonder our ancestor's got up at daybreak & went... More

We absolutely love visiting the old historic places. It's a must to visit and revisit. It never gets old, no matter how many times you go. That it what Gatlingburg is really all about, not the commercialism. THE HISTORY :)

This was hidden in plain sight in downtown Gatlinburg! Right before this trip we found the cabins original owner, Martha Jane Huskey Ogle is my children's 8x great grandmother! Great bit of history in a very touristy area.

I love how they keep the cabin and barn open for visitors to walk through instead of blocked off like a lot of historic buildings! Also enjoyed walking the trail through the woods to see their old spring pump
