John Oliver Cabin by Gary L   Suddath


Small (23.2" x 15.5")


Pioneer cabin located in the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park
The Olivers bought land in the Cove in 1826 and this cabin site remained in the family until the Park was established. The house is typical of many found on the eastern frontier in the mid-1850s, and reflects the skills and techniques brought into the mountains by descendants of British and European immigrants.

    My mom nearly stepped on a copperhead right off the back porch here a few years ago. Interseting composition with the fence in the foreground.
