Walker Sisters Cabin in the Smokies - a little more info.

I few weeks ago I posted HERE this image. . .

I didn't know anything about the image at the time other than what I posted. . .

Thanks to a site I follow on Facebook I have since learned a little, actually a lot, more about the place.
It is now known as the Walker Sisters cabin and has quite the story behind it . . . and it still stands.

Any of these following links can tell you as much as you would like to know about the place..

and here is a link to a PDF file on the original story.

It is hard to imagine in this day and age that someone lived in that house, using the old ways until 1964!
I was nine when that house was last used as a home.

 And they had a dog!


  1. Fascinating. Enjoyed the article - you can see their point of view. Loved the 'then and now' photos.

    1. It is just amazing how they stayed at it so long.
