The Noah “Bud” Ogle Place was a homestead located in the Great Smoky Mountains of Sevier County, in the U.S. state of Tennessee.
The homestead presently consists of a cabin, barn, and tub mill built by mountain farmer Noah “Bud” Ogle (1863–1913) in the late 19th-century. In 1977, the homestead was added to the National Register of Historic Places and is currently maintained by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The surviving structures at the Noah Ogle Place are characteristic of a typical 19th-century Southern Appalachian mountain farm.

Ogle’s barn is an excellent example of a four-pen barn, a design once common in the area, although this barn is the last remaining four-pen barn in the park.
