Really gives you a sense of how the founders of Gatlinburg lived back in the day. You can feel the ambiance of the time while walking into the building and barn. If you go..make sure to walk behind the barn and over the creek...there are some cool bridges and trails in the woods.

This was a great stop on our way to Rainbow Falls. We are amazed at how well the Ogle cabin and barn had survived the years and how the twin fireplace was built. An amazing site. One of the photos of the cabin now graces our living room wall.

No info about the cabin. Read about the history in one of the local guides. Good place to take some photos and... More

Being a history buff I love all the historic places we are able to see. This is a free attraction although you can give a donation if you wish. Then from there you can begin the Roaring Forks trail. Awesome adventure!!

A quick taste of local history if you should be in the area of the downtown Welcome Center. You have to keep an eye out for it because it's a small, one-room cabin that's tucked away. It's staffed by a friendly lady who is in time-appropriate dress and really knows her stuff. It's free and just takes a few minutes.

I had been to the cabin several times before but was never able to see inside until now. It's been moved closer to its original site and furnished with time period artifacts. A woman in time period clothing explains the history of the house and the people who built and settled in the cabin. It's free but they do have... More

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.
