This isn't a glitzy place to visit, but the cabin and the costumed interpreter can help you appreciate what Gatlinburg used to be: a beautiful place to come and raise a family. Today it is a combination of honky-tonk stuff and spectacular scenery, and we love it all (with the honky-tonk in small doses).

The staff was very friendly and informative about the cabin and its history. With most major attractions costing money, having crowds and lines it was nice to stop at the cabin to slow down and learn a bit of history. The small attraction is free to the public. I had two children with me both middle school age and they... More

The cabin rests on the corner of two very busy streets, nestled in the shadow of towering buildings in downtown Gatlinburg. Step inside and you're treated to some really neat period artifacts and photographs depicting the very early days of the town. If you follow this up with a visit to the history exhibit at the Visitors Center next to... More

The Historic Ogle Cabin (not to be confused with the Noah "Bud" Ogle Cabin) is even more visible since it has been relocated. It used to sit on the corner of the parkway and Cherokee Orchard Rd, across from the Aquarium. It has been relocated to the intersection of the parkway and 321 right next to Freenotes Harmony Park, the... More

This cabin really shows the history of the Smoky Mountains. This is easy to get too so you don't have to drive way into the mountains. Just what you's expect to see in the quaint Gatlinburg area.

I love all the cabins around Gatlinburg but I really appreciate that they moved this one to the center of town and gave a brief history of the founders of Gatlinburg without anyone having to go out of their way to find it. Adds quaintness to an already quaint town!
