Noah “Bud” Ogle and his wife Cindy first settled in what is now Gatlinburg in 1879. On their 400 acre farm they built the cabin that still stands near downtown Gatlinburg. Located on Airport Road near the start of the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, the Ogle cabin is a great place to visit to get a glimpse of what pioneer life was like in the Appalachian Mountains.
The Ogle’s barn, located just above the cabin is known as a four-pen barn. Although once common, this barn is the last remaining four-pen barn in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The Ogle cabin located below the barn had a very unique feature for the time….running water. A wooden plume ran from the spring near the cabin up to the back porch. Once there the water poured into a double sink, made from a large log: http://www.thegreatsmokies.net/noah-bud-ogle-ca...
