Seeing he cabin in downtown Gatlinburg was a treat and a reminder of the roots of the town. It was locked so could not see inside.

this spot is a lovely place to send a bit of time. There is a nature trail that leads through the property and is a nice way to get in the woods.

Visited the cabin when it was on the corner near the subway and now it's at a new location. Not so crazy about the new location. It looks totally out of place, but I still love it for the historical value.

This cabin was easily accessible from the road and was a very interesting insight into the settlers of the mountains. It really was a hard-scabble life in the mountains.

Loved looking at this cabin on our walk to and from our hotel. The lady there knew every bit of its history and loved sharing the information with us. The cabin is in excellent condition, take the 10 minutes to go thru it, amazing.

This place is all about the history!!! One of if not the first cabins built by the settlers in the area. From the acorn grows the mighty oak. This is one of the acorns!!! Go for a visit and take in a breath of history from the mountains!!!
