Noah Bud Ogle Cabin, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Find yourself transported back in time at Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and discover what life was like for the pioneers in the Appalachian Mountains. The cabin of a "saddlebag" type--two similar cabins joined by a single chimney--is a rare structure within a typical 19th-century Southern Appalachian mountain homestead. You can see that the two cabins weren't built at the same time if you look at the unleveled roof. Inside the cabin, you won't find any furnishings but you can still enjoy some interesting original features, such as a tiny window for chicken near the floor and fireplaces made of rubble. Noah Bud Ogle Cabin is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Great Smoky Mountains National Park Edition.

  • Great historic cabin and barn. Absolutely beautiful to see. 0.7 mile trail nearby that leads you to an old tub mill along the creek. Very interesting to see. The trail is not paved and there are rocks to walk over. Wear good supportive shoes. There are a few creek crossings along the way where you'll have to walk across sturdy single rail logs. Otherwise, my 3 kids (8, 10 and 11 years old) and my 60 year old mother made it through the trail just fine.
  • Be sure to take the time to stop by here and visit Bud's Place. There is a guided nature trail that takes you through Bud's property back to a stream with an old grist mill. We've seen turkey and bear along this trail. It is well worth your time!
