The Oconaluftee bottomlands were first settled by 

European/Americans in the 1790's,
just below Rattlesnake Mountain, seen in the distant mist.
 This exhibit of a mountain farm consists of reconstructed log structures
brought in to give visitors a sense of what it was like
 to live as early Appalachian homesteaders.
