Remnants of the Past

I love history and seeing how folks lived in the past. I was in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee recently.  It was not an easy life for the early settlers who lived in this area. It reminded me of my family history, my grandfather’s grandfather grew up in the Appalachians.   Here’s a photo of an early settler’s chimney that remains standing. You can’t help but wonder what the folks were like who lived here.  It is a very peaceful and serene place.

  1. I think your pictures of my Cable family home and mill are very well done! They would be proud to see these I am sure. You are an excellent photographer, keep up the good work!
