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

It was a great day and a nice walk. The Elk came out and it made the day even better. I was just happy the rangers keep the people back from the wild Elk.

An amazing piece of history. We loved seeing and reading about all the old buildings. The setting at the base of the smokies is gorgeous. A great place to stop, have a picnic and enjoy the fresh air.

If you are interested in how the first non Indians lived in this area, this village is a great way to see their homes, how they farmed etc. It runs alongside the river and is a nice walk.

I think we must have come before they are ready for the summer crowds. We didn’t see where to get the guided tour headphones. Also, it looks like they have animals during the busy season. We did see 5 Elk in the river which was...More

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
