Hidden at traffic light #6, behind trees & bushes, is the very 1st home built in the Smokies! It's a rustic, one room cabin which housed the Ogle family & all their many children (9 I think). It's set up with artifacts from back in the 1800's when it was first built & a docent is on duty to tell... More

short walk to cabin. Very cool historic facts about the cabin and the family. Delightful older gentlemen sharing facts about the area and the cabin.

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 :)

A very nice hike from cabin back to a waterfall. Beautiful scenery. There was also a mill near the waterfall. There was a couple with their child having a picnic by the creek/river. So cool.

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

Great to see first house built in Gatlinburg and how small it is even though a family of 5 lived there

We were visiting for the day and walking around and came across the cabin. It was a joy to find something so well looked after. The lady sat in cabin was happy to answer our questions. The story behind the family was inspiring. . . .and hard to imagine life in those times. . . .and seeing how America developed.... More

I've visited Gatlinburg twice in the last year for work so I did not have the time to visit the cabin. I did make time to visit Martha's grave that is in walking distance of the cabin at the White Oak Flats Cemetery. The cabin was not open but I still was very happy to be able to walk around... More
