Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove Area, Tennessee

Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a beautiful valley, or "cove", located within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. When the park service took possession of the valley in the 1930's there were a considerable number of historic cabins still standing. The park service left many of these, while removing most of the newer buildings, leaving the appearance that the area is stuck in time.
