Matilda Shields Gregory’s husband walked out on her and a small son. Her brothers threw together the resemblance of a cabin that sits in the back. This is where she was living when she met Henry Whitehead. It wasn’t long till romance was in the air. It was handed down thru the families Henry promised to build her the best cabin in Cades Cove, and well he did. This is thought to be one of two sawn log homes in the Smokies. It is the only one standing today….located in Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountain N.P…..shot a couple weeks ago while shooting with Sherri and Ronnie Hamilton
