John Oliver Cabin, Cades Cove, TN.



“One of the oldest log homes in the park, the Oliver place remained in the family until the park was established. Architecturally, it reflects the techniques and skills of European immigrants and represents a style typically found on the eastern frontier in the mid-1850s. The cabin contains no pegs or nails because gravity locks them together. The open spaces between the logs (chinks) were filled with mud to seal out the rain and wind. The small windows and doors conserved heat and maintained the building's strength.” READ MOE
