Not a bad way to spend some time. Its directly behind the visitor center. It offers a neat look back at living in the Great Smoky Mountains. There is also a large creek flowing on the walk up.

We did a leisurely walk around this area. Some elk crossed the Oconaluftee River while we were there, but we only saw a couple after they had crossed. We did see other elk in the area, which was a pleasant surprise!

Stopped here to see the area. Nice visitors center and area. Didn't see any elk but park ranger said there usually out early morning and it was already 10am. Worth a stop here and get a look back in time.

The Mountain Farm Museum at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center is in my opinion the best creation of a 19th/early 20th century mountain homestead in the entire region. I say "recreation" because, although all the buildings are authentic and original, most were moved to this site...More

We have visited many times with our kids and then our grand kids . This farm provides a great lesson and sight into the past on how people farmed in the Smokey Mountains years ago . It was not a easy life .
