Noah Bud Ogle Cabin, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Historic Walking Area · Architectural Building
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 Edition.

  • This is a really nice nature trail if you want the scenery of a hike but maybe not such strenuous workout. We went as a group of 8 people of all ages in all kinds of shape and we had an easy fun...  more »
  • This was my 2nd time to visit here. Really rocky especially near the barn so be careful. A really cool creek is down from the house. It was so cool to imagine the pioneers living here years ago...  more »

  • So enjoyed walking around this property & on the trails. Not really busy like other old homesteads. The walk through the woods to the river was wonderful. This is a gorgeous place. Mountain Laurel was blooming so pretty! Love Roaring Fork Motor Trail.
  • This attraction is still in poor shape after the fire two years ago and the winter effects. I have been here in the past and appreciated the attention to detail and timelessness of the rustic cabin and surroundings, but the park system has a ways to go before they have it back in the original condition, I estimate about two more years at the apparent rate of work. Recommended to wait until 2021 to stop here.
