Noah “Bud” Ogle and wife Cindy settled here in the White Oaks Flats area of the Smokies in 1879.They were told this rocky area wasn’t fit for farming but made a livin on their 400 acres anyway. They lived in a shack until the closest cabin was built. Later on when kids started poppin up they added the section on the far end. Both side share a common chimney and this style of cabin is know as a Saddlebag. They had a tub grist mill down at the stream. They were also one of the few with running water at the cabin. Noah ran a small trough similar to what was at the tub mill from the spring on the hill to the sink seen on the far side of the back porch.
This cabin is located on the road joining The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains. He did add on the trough from the spring and ran it into a double sink on the back porch.
