Love's Speculation

Record #:
The oldest primitive house in western North Carolina was the Woody House. It was located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park between the Big Catalooche and the Little Catalooche rivers and by best estimation dates to the late 1700s. The home is located on what was known as Love's Speculation, a land grant purchased by Colonel Robert Love after the Revolutionary War. Park administrators saved the building because it was the oldest and largest log cabin within its boundaries.
