Stories-A History of Appalachia


Nov 10, 2018

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park was formed out of privately owned farms, woodlands, pastures and homes that had been purchased by the government.  Most of the structures on those tracts of land were torn down and nature allowed to take its course.  One piece of property, though, has not had its buildings removed and you can still visit it today.  

On this episode of Stories, we tell the story of Elkmont and the Wonderland Hotel, near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, a place you can still visit in the heart of the park.
