Interesting find

As you are walking through town you come upon this cabin on a public green. It is interesting to read the plaque and try to imagine what changes this little cabin has seen.

We've visited here a few times. the cabin is pretty neat to see but the trail is what we come for. It's a pretty easy hike. When we visited after it had snowed once it was a little hard to follow the trail in a few places though.

This cabin, sitting in downtown Gatlinburg, serves as a reminder of the hardy people who once inhabited Appalachia. Be sure to visit the other Ogle cabin up Airport Rd. Much more to see and do there.

Amidst the shopping, restaurants, and activities quietly sits this little cabin that dates back to the days where Gatlinburg was a tiny hamlet of dirt roads and hard working pioneers of the area. It's good to stop and think of what was before all the noise and activity of today.

I rated this low because there are 2 Ogle Cabins. One is in town where the map shows this to be. Nothing really to see here. The other is on the roaring fork motor nature trail which is where the description and photos are describing. 2 completely separate places/things.

The Historic Ogle Log Cabin is right in Gatlinburg, and is a Must See. This attraction is FREE!! Check out the beams & quality construction, before power tools! Truly amazing & worth seeing!

We advanced on the home barn with thoughts dancing in our heads: how did they build this? what was it like that many years ago? why did they come to this location? The average visitor would spend time wandering in years gone by just imaging the survival of the animals and people who choose this place to settle. Each stroke... More

A great reminder of the area's history tucked right in the middle of town. The contrast is puts things in perspective. It's worth taking a few minutes for some quiet reflection.
