Black Bears - Gregg-Cable Mill House-GSMNP by 

Black bears are the symbol of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Eastern Wilderness. Biologists estimate approximately 1,600 bears live in the park, a density of over two bears per square mile.You can see why people love to come to Cades Cove, it is, I think, the only National Park with pioneer settlements. But it is mostly about rubbing shoulders with the Native American Indian and the wildlife. Cades Cove was once known as “Kate’s Cove” after an Indian chief’s wife. The Cove drew the Cherokee Nation back again and again by its abundant wildlife and good hunting. Today, Cades Cove is still as full of wildlife as before but draws not hunters, but millions of Smokies visitors.
The Gregg-Cable House was built in 1879 at another location in the cove. After the last owner died, the house was moved from its original location to the Cable Mill area. This was the first frame house built in Cades Cove and was built for the family to live in and to operate a family business; a store. Products for the store were brought from Maryville by way of ox and wagon. Leason Gregg’s family opened the store in the downstairs and they lived in the upper floors. The Cables owned over 600 acres. ….I am kin to the first white settlers in Cades Cove by marriage….Olivers 4th Great Grandparents

    awesome shot and timing! great composition and i love your history behind this place

  • Thanks, I love sharing. The newer digital work I did, went to the Smokies not far from me either, so I had something to add other than lizards in my Smoky Mountain Habitat. Photo sharing is new to me anyway. I was always busy doing my own thing. I love getting bear shots. I have enjoyed viewing yours.
