After it was partially destroyed by vandals in the 70's, the historic Daniel Cook cabin was dismantled and stored in a barn for over 25 years. It was reconstructed during the 1999 Restoration of America's Log Cabins program with help from the makers of Log Cabin Syrup working with The National Park Foundation. As part of the goal to retain authenticity, the Cook cabin is sited on its original homestead stone foundation in the remote Little Cataloochee Valley.
Today, the one-room cabin with its two-sided porch is one of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park's oldest and finest. Found near the middle of a 7+ mi. trail, it can be reached only by foot or horse. Haywood County, NC.
