Nice to stop and show the little kids how things were back then. Think they have a new appreciation for how easy life is now. If you follow the stream back there are some nice places to picnic or skip stones.

Stopped on the way from Maggie Valley to Gatlinburg to see what there was. This place was great our 7 and 3 year old loved it. Our 7 year old was particularly intrigued to see what life was like before electricity and devices were around.
