It is amazing the hardships our ancestors frought in attempting to eek out an existence in these areas. We enjoyed viewing the Ogle Log Cabin, wished that it had been unlocked so we could have seen more of the interior, instead of just through the windows, but very enjoyable anyways. It is in downtown Gatlinburg, so you can readily visit.

This is a good place to visit to help gain a historical perspective on the Gatlinburg area. Parking and access are easy for me and I'm a senior citizen with a prosthetic leg. The drive to and from the cabin is scenic and pleasant.

This is a short drive from town and you can enjoy the scenery,we have often seen bear on the way. You can take a short walk up to the cabins and go in them,its all free which makes it even better! I suggest this for everyone,very fun!

This is an excellent example of the area history. Makes us proud of our heritage when you read the strong desires of these mountain folks.

We happened to walk by and see the hostess outside and started talking to her and she invited us in. She was a lovely & knowledgeable hostess and gave us very interesting information. Take time to visit when you are here. No charge, but donations are taken.

This was my families favorite adventure. They loved looking at the old homes and trying to visualize what it was like with so few necessities. We encountered bears, deer and other wild life on this tour.
