Artist's Description

Winding one lane road along Middle Prong Little River in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This was originally a railroad bed for the Little River Lumber Co. About 2/3 of the park was purchased from lumber companies. Little River Lumber created a logging town here at Tremont as well as Elkmont and Townsend. They logged in this area for about 3 decades. The last lumber was removed from here in about 1938. There is a Auto Tour Guide for this area that will explain much of the logging operation if you ever visit. Before becoming the park about a billion broad feet of lumber was removed from the Smokies.
