Daisy Town, Abandoned Resort Enclave in the Smoky Mountains
A National Park with the opportunity for exploration of long-abandoned dilapidated cabins? That is double the pleasure for me! Daisy Town was a resort enclave established in the early 20th century by pioneer Appalachians. The old cottages are easily accessible in the Elkmont region of Great Smoky Mountains National Park and I roamed about them freely. While many have been razed already, some are set for preservation and restoration as they are registered with the National Register of Historic Places. I was glad I was able to see them the way they were, the way they were left.
