Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains a variety of log cabins, churches, and other historical structures that have been preserved to retain their original appearance. Unlike many other national parks, the land to establish the park was purchased from private owners rather than previously owned by the government. While some families continued to lease their homes after the creation of the park in 1934, many sold their land and moved to adjacent towns. The collective sacrifice of the residents of the Smoky Mountains, though a contentious subject to this day, allowed for the existence of what is now America's most popular National Park.
Created for Light Grey Art Lab's Tiny Homes exhibition in September 2016.
