Smoky Mountains - Ogle Farm

Smoky Mountains – Ogle Farm


Located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains you will find the long ago abandoned Noah “Bud” Ogle Farm’s cabin. The homestead presently consists of this cabin, a barn, and tub mill that was built by the mountain farmer Noah “Bud” Ogle in the late 1880s and early 1890s. In 1977, his homestead was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The surviving structures are characteristic of a typical 19th-century Southern Appalachian mountain farm. Ogle’s cabin is a type known as a “saddlebag” cabin (two single-pen cabins joined by a common chimney), which was a relatively rare design in the region. Noah Ogle’s great-grandparents, William Ogle and his wife Martha Huskey, were the first Euro-American settlers in the Gatlinburg area.
