Travel Timeouts: Spotlight on the "Walker Sisters Place"

Jun 03, 2014

The Walker Sisters Cabin or “Walker Sisters Place” is a famous homestead previously owned by five sisters in the Little Greenbrier area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.The sisters became famous for adhering to traditional mountain living and refusing to sell their cabin to the National Park Service. The sisters lived on the property well past the formation of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the 1930s. Upon the last surviving Walker sister’s death in 1964, the National Park Service took control of the land, restoring it in 1976. The Walker Sisters Cabin remains a popular attraction and window into the trials, tribulations, and joys of mountain life.
