Noah “Bud” Ogle

The Bud Ogle Cabin, built in the late 19th century by it’s namesake, Noah “Bud” Ogle, was a farm and cabin located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The homestead consists of a cabin, barn, and tubmill, all of which were built by Bud Ogle, and were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

The Bud Ogle Cabin itself is actually two cabins that share a single chimney, often referred to as a “saddlebag,” cabin. The two cabins were built roughly five years apart, the second cabin added to accommodate Noah’s growing family. Both of the cabins measure 18 feet by 20 feet and the construction is the same, both one story with a loft and made of hewn logs with half-dovetail notches. The land also include an apple orchard and Noah Ogle also grew corn.
