The walk alongside the river to the farm is pretty enough in itself. Enjoyed the old cabin and outbuildings. Good for pictures.

Saw an elk right by the barn. I was 10 feet from it. She was beautiful. The kids will certainly enjoy the place.

This stop was a big hit with my 13 year old, and we all know how hard they are to entertain! She enjoys history, so being able to walk through this historic farm impressed her. We paid the $1.00 for the information booklet, a box...More

If you are looking for history, you need to see this, I can't help but wonder how they made this fence.. I loved the space around each barn and the upkeep is great..

Good to take a family to show how things were and also its free. Free to walk around and tour as you please. Great little place.

Sure it's a re-creation of a farm. But it's authentic in other aspects, easy to walk around and provides a great glimpse into the area. Just wish we had more time to spend walking around - we'll be back and really, fully, take it in....More

The museum was amazing. It was great to see all of the old original buildings. It is a very easy walk around the farm. The area surrounding the farm and visitors center was beautiful. Take a short walk by the river

Stop by as you enter the Smoky Mountains from Cherokee. This well preserved piece of history is intriguing and takes you back to the old days. The grounds are well kept. The visitors center is very nice and the rangers are helpful

i would leave a pet in the car if possible or on a leash in the parking area only. elk and wild turkeys are out and about in these areas and not advisable for dogs as they may scare off this attraction
