Artist's Description

Even though most pioneer cabins didn’t have gutters this may seem like a new idea. In 1066 the Norman invasion instigated a massive rebuilding of English towns and churches. Grand buildings have stone roofs and parapets, which lead to gutters and gargoyles to throw the water clear. These early settlers had probably seen gutters of one sort or nother by the time they got here but most evidently didn’t feel the need for them. The gutter here is on The Queen-Davis House,GSMNP. Built by John E. Davis who was a master craftsman who built the house with the aid of his two boys. Noah Ogle had used a similar type troth to run water from a spring to his back porch. These were a group of people that used what they had around them to make places to live and tools to work with. The food they had was buy trading their crafts or hunting/growing. They by far weren’t a unlearned class of people but very able to adapt to what ever change life threw at them.
