Touring Cades Cove of The Great Smoky Mountains of TN, is an 11-mile loop that follows many of the curves and courses that settlers forged years ago. Cades Cove is a lush valley surrounded by mountains and one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smokies. You will likely come upon wildlife, such as the white tail deer, wild turkey, ground hog and an occasional black bear. It takes visitors into another time, experiencing heritage in each building and wilderness around every turn. Settlers came to this area in 1819, migrating from Virginia. Later from North Carolina, their culture from the old world with knowledge gained from the Indians. By the 1850’s population of Cades Cove was at 685, occupying 137 households. Though this is a driving trail, you must get out of your car and experience the beauty of the trails, wildlife and scenery. Remember that the wildlife is wild and it is unlawful to feed animals and do not drive on or in the fields. First stop on the loop is (1) John Oliver’s Place. The Oliver’s settled into Cades Cove in 1826. This cabin home remained in the Oliver family until the Park was established in the late 1920’s. Make a left to visit the (2) Primitive Baptist Church. Early settlers established this church in 1827, with only a log building to serve the community until 1887. During the Civil War, public unrest shut the church down. Next see the (3) Methodist Church. This building and its furnishings were reportedly the work of a single man, J.D. McCampbell. A blacksmith and carpenter, he built the church in 115 days for $115. He later became a preacher; serving the area’s Methodist population. Just after Hyatt Lane you will find the (4) Missionary Baptist Church. It was formed in 1839, when members of the Primitive Baptist Church were dismissed for favoring missionary work. This structure dates from 1894, beginning with a membership of 40 and eventually rising to an enrollment of 115. During the Civil War the church failed to meet for services, but reopened following the war minus Confederate sympathizers. To the right you will find (5) Rich Mountain Road. Once an Indian trail, this 12-mile long trek, was built by the state of Tennessee in the 1920’s. Here a remarkable view of the cove awaits from the top of the path. (6) Cooper Road Trail sits just ahead. This trail once served as a path for wagons, but today it is a 10-mile hiking trail that ends near the Foothills Parkway. At the end of a half-mile hiking trail you will find (7) Elijah Oliver Place. Surrounded by a smokehouse, barn and springhouse, this cabin home takes visitors back to a different time. The springhouse looks down on the rest of the home, offering a clean water supply and insuring what modest sanitation was available. At the next stop you will find the (8) Cable Mill Area. This area features the Cades Cove Visitors Center, the blacksmith shop, cantilever barn, smokehouse, Gregg-Cable house, the corn crib and the John Cable Barn in Cades CoveMill. The mill is still working and visitors can stop in and sample or purchase corn mill and flour as our ancestors once did. This is a must stop for visitors to the Cove. On up the trail you will find (9) Henry Whitehead Place. Built in 1898, this log house and surrounding dwellings are an example of the roughest and finest log construction in the Smokies. If you feel like stretching your legs a bit try (10) Cades Cove Nature Trail. This half mile loop takes visitors into the woods to experience how a settler’s family would forge for necessities. Just ahead on the right you will find (11) Dan Lawson Place. Built around 1856, some of the better blade work of the time is represented in this home. Small outbuildings served as family pantries,also used as a granary and smokehouse. You can also stop at (12) Tipton Place. “Hamp” Tipton had this home built shortly after the Civil War. The long shed on the opposite side of the house is an apiary or bee gum stand, offering honey as a common confection. As your tour of the cove comes to a close, you will see (13) Carter Shields Cabin sitting nestled near the end of the loop. An example of craftsmanship in the area, this small cottage offers visitors one last opportunity to step out of their lives and into the past.
