The Mountain Farm area and buildings are authentically maintained, safe, and wonderful to tour. This is the kind of place where kids can explore and you can still keep an eye on them. Very nice historical perspective.

Great information and very authentic looking mountain farm. Beautiful area and it gives a great presentation of what life on a farm would be back in. The early 1900s. This is a must see for children to help them understand what a early American mountain farm was like. A must see!!! You can check this out in about an hour... More

This was a most informative visit. The buildings were original. They had a garden planted and showed you the primative tools they used.

We used to stop here regularly when I was a kid. I took my children here recently and was glad to see that it still looked good. It's a simple walk and a beautiful stop in the Smokey's.

Site behind the Oconaluftee Visitor's Center featuring some old cabins, barns and storage houses used by early settlers in the area. Interesting to see how those people lived. Short hike to everything from the visitor's center. Can also get info and go the the restroom at the visitor's center.

Not a bad way to spend some time. Its directly behind the visitor center. It offers a neat look back at living in the Great Smoky Mountains. There is also a large creek flowing on the walk up.

We did a leisurely walk around this area. Some elk crossed the Oconaluftee River while we were there, but we only saw a couple after they had crossed. We did see other elk in the area, which was a pleasant surprise!
