In the early 1900s family farms covered the valley. Self-sufficiency was the rule in those days, but most people made use of the mill, the country store, and the blacksmith shop. The buildings assembled here represent part of a typical mountain community.

Cable Mill is the only building on its original site. The Park Service constructed the blacksmith shop. Other buildings came from sites within the park.
