Arnwine Cabin-Museum of Appalachia

"It was my intention not to develop a cold, formal, lifeless "museum." Rather, I have aimed for the "lived-in" look, striving for, above all else, authenticity. It was my goal to make the Bunch House, the Arnwine Cabin, and all the other dwellings appear as though the family had just strolled down to the spring to fetch the daily supply of water." John Rice Irwin, Founder & Director

Cade's Cove - A step back in time - This is a great spot to view life the way it used to be. When driving through this beautiful park, it is not unusual to see deer grazing, and maybe even a bear or two!
