John Oliver Cabin

25th January 2012
The John Oliver cabin in Cades Cove is one of the oldest preserved structures in the Smokies. John and Lucretia Oliver were among the first settlers and lived a rough life the first few years trying to clear the land. The only roads into the cove were Indian trails and it was said the family would have starved that first winter if not for the Indians. Despite the hardships the Olivers made it and what a beautiful view they had of the Cove!
