Alex Cole Cabin



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The Alex Cole Cabin is located in the Jim Bales Place along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail behind Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cabin was moved to this location after the park service gained control of the land in the 1930s. It is more representative of the pioneer days of Appalachia than the frame home of the Bales family, which was torn down.

I do enjoying seeing and learning about any old building. If this one could talk, what a tale it could share.

I clicked on this to get an even better look. Gosh, no windows!!! Surely people didn't live here? There would be room for a bed, table, chair, where would you put things?

I suppose it is not as big as your lounge.

Brave pioneers esp the women.

I am always inspired by such cabins.
I imagine people living in them in winter. Whole families sitting in close quarters enjoying each others company with a crackling fire and porridge always ready on the hearth.
The sounds and smells of the forest around them. What a great life!!!
