John Oliver Cabin

When touring Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the first roadside attraction visitors encounter is the John Oliver Cabin. John and Lucretia Oliver were the original European settlers in this verdant valley, befriended by the Cherokee Indians, who offered assistance during their first winter. The cabin was built in 1822.

Prints are available in my gallery. Thank you.

    Portrait of a splendid building…imagine standing strong in winds, rains, snowfalls for nearly 200 years!! All 3 photos images are lovely but my personal fav is the top one. Wood and stone, weathered together, fascinate me. Gorgeous work!! 👏👏♥️👏👏

      Yes, indeed. We take for granted how difficult times were & how hard people worked to survive, building such structures to endure the elements. I’m glad you like it, Robin. 🙂
