Constructed in 1866 by Elijah Oliver.He was the son of John Oliver and born in the cove in 1824. His original farm was destroyed during the U.S. Civil War by Confederate marauders. This cabin is considered a dog-trot cabin sence it has a breezeway between the main house and kitchen.People in the cove didn’t turn away strangers who may need food or a place to spend the night.The closed in portion of the front porch was a “stranger room” Elijah built for this reason.This cabin is located a short hike from the Cades Cove Loop Road in the Great Smoky Mountain NP

    I really love this one, Gary. Great angle, and I love that you’ve included enough of the setting to show it’s surrounding woodlands. Beautifully done!
