Ogle Cabin at Cherokee Orchard Road (Historic Site)

 


Ogle Cabin is the first cabin that was built in Gatlinburg, and one the oldest buildings in The Smoky Mountains.


Billy Ogle selected the building site for what he considered The Land of Paradise. When he went back to South Carolina to bring his wife Martha,  his 5 sons and 2 daughters, he became ill and died soon after with malaria. Martha Ogle and her 7 children moved to what is Gatlinburg now, and built the cabin.


The historic cabin is located at the corner of Parkway and Orchard Rd beside the Southern Highland Craft Guild's Arrowcraft Shop.


The building has been occupied by family member until 1910.


The property was then sold to Pi Beta Phi in 1921 and the cabin was used as hospital, then as a museum of mountain crafts.


There are a lot of trails that run around the cabin and the major one is the trail that run along Cherokee Orchard Road.
