Buildings found on farms in the area, moved to the location of the Oconaluftee Visitor at Smoky Mountain National Park. Wonderful opportunity to learn & visualize the hard life required to survive in this mountain terrain. Placards describe the purpose of the buildings. A part of history not to be forgotten.

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 from other parts of the Smokies.

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 .

We stopped here while out exploring. A really neat place and the kids enjoyed it. I love when our history is preserved and respected. A great place to teach children and all ages our past and our history. I would recommend the stop and check it out. It's free too!

My husband and I go to Cherokee often and decided to stop by the Mountain Farm Museum. It was a step back in time. It was interesting to see how people lived in that area many years ago. It is a self guided tour so you can take as much time as you want or go as quickly as you... More
