Cemetery at Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church by 

Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church was organized on June 16, 1827, the oldest established church in the Cades Cove settlement in the Appalachian Mountains. It was originally a log building until 1887. Names of most of the earliest families who settled the Cove can be found in the cemetery behind the church. Cades Cove is now part of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
