We love to explore the old historic places and learn the history of the area we are exploring. This place is worth a stop.

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.

This old homesite is located on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. It has an easy walking trail that leads to more portions of the homesite such the spring and water flume. This is a great way to learn about early mountain life in what is now the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

If you love history, take time to visit the Ogle farm and cabin. The park service has done an excellent job of providing a printed guide that gives an accurate overview of how hard the life of mountain pioneers really was. Seeing how the cold winter winds must have gone around the log home was a sobering thought. The nature... More

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

We did the entire nature loop. It is an easy and beautiful walk with lots of streams and cascades. A little disappointed that the mill was in such bad shape, but it was still interesting to see.

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.
