We've visited this place many times and never fail to enjoy looking at the old buildings and reading about the way people used to live. To see pictures, visit my review of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center.

We came here after driving Newfound Gap Hwy. So we walked around the farm, there are markers so you can read about the history of each building. Nice history lesson about how people lived over a century ago.

The barn would be a wonderful place to have a family get together or wedding. Wonderful displays of local history. It was so cool to see the old equipment & think back to all the stories my grandma use to tell me.

What a wonderful place to get an idea of how mountain life was when life was simple and survival a challenge. You'll love touring the old buildings and if you're lucky, see some elk, especially in the evening or early morning.
