Artist's Description

One may wonder why after building one of the finest houses in the Cove, they didn’t tear down the old one. Since they lived in the end of the 19th century it would be hard to know for sure. We can surmise reasons from what we know of that era. Those that ventured into the mountains were a resourceful people. They were prone to not waste anything or taking anything for granted. What they had they got by the sweat they put in it. Perhaps they were more worried about heating the main house up cooking a meal or canning, than they were of the appearance of Matilda’s cabin. Maybe they wanted room for kids later on or a place for strangers to sleep. It could be used for a warm place for some of the livestock; it would a beat milking the cow in the freezing barn. We may never know what they used it for, for it had many possibilities. We know times were hard and you usually worked from “can see” to “can’t see”, septine on Sundays. They lived off what they could provide their selves. Perhaps they just left it to remind them of how good they did have it…..more info on these cabins can be found on the other images of the same place….made in Cades Cove, GSMNP
