Ogle Place

On the road to the Roaring Fork Motor trail, you pass the Ogle Place homestead.  Nice site to photograph if you can get there when the light is good and the swarms of photographers are still in bed.

The Noah “Bud” Ogle Place homestead presently consists of a cabin, barn, and tub mill built by mountain farmer Noah “Bud” Ogle (1863–1913) in the late 19th-century. In 1977, the homestead was added to the National Register of Historic Places and is currently maintained by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The surviving structures at the Noah Ogle Place 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. Ogle’s barn is an excellent example of a four-pen barn, a design once common in the area, although this barn is the last remaining four-pen barn in the park. Ogle’s tub mill is the park’s last surviving operational tub mill and one of the few operational tub mills in the region. A later owner of the Ogle farm renamed the farm “Junglebrook,” and the farm is thus sometimes referred to as the “Junglebrook Historic District.”

  1. Love this place. Glad you stopped in.

  2. That is very interesting photography, especially that last one. I assume that’s an open door I see on the other side of the window. It almost has an eerie feel to it.

    Also, I had no idea there were landmarks where swarms of photographers could be found. I just found that little fact entertaining. It’s like the cabin has its own paparazzi. ^_^

    • There were about twelve there the first day, being barked at by their “guide”. I heard the term “dude” used with alarming frequency following which the swarm disbanded, strapping themselves into a motorcade of epic length to trudge forth to the next opportunity.
