Artist's Description

Dan Lawson Place, Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, USA

The cabin you see here was built by Peter Cable in the 1840’s. In 1850, Dan Lawson married Mary Jane Cable, the daughter of Peter Cable. He built a cabin for he and his bride on the property he purchased from his father-in-law.

The Peter Cable cabin was acquired by Dan Lawson after Peter’s death about 1865. With Dan’s aquisition of the Cable farm, he continued to expanded it into one of the largest holdings in the Cove, stretching from ridge to ridge, making him one of the wealthiest men in the cove.

The original cabin, a pre-Civil War dwelling, was made of hewn logs but was altered at times by the addition of sawed lumber. The finishing work on the inside of the house is some of the best in the Cove. The faces of the logs were hewn smooth with an adze and the ceiling joists were dressed and beaded with a plane – unusual detailing for the 1800’s. The brick chimney, an unusual sight in the Cove, was constructed of bricks made on the property.
