This is perhaps the best re-creation anywhere of a mountain farmstead. The nine farm buildings, all dating from the late 19th century, were moved to this site, next to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, from locations within the park. Besides a furnished two-story chestnut log cabin, there is a barn, apple house, corn crib, smokehouse, springhouse, chicken coop, and other outbuildings. In season, corn, tomatoes, pole beans, squash, and other mountain crops are grown in the
garden, and park staff sometimes put on demonstrations of pioneer activities, such as making apple butter and molasses. Two 1 1/2-mile walking trails (easy) begin near the farm museum.
