Once you guys started venturing out of Tennessee, you just didn't stop, eh? I enjoyed the photos. My ancestors were Eat Tennesseans in the not too distant past.

I was there a few times as a child. I would love to see it again now when I am older and would appreciate it much more. Great history and pictures Joe.

We ate there! How was the traffic? It must have been late summer when we stayed in Pigeon Forge and the traffic was incredible between there and Gatlinburg.
