Built in the early 1800's, this simple mountain cabin was operated as an inn, or "ordinary", from about 1830 until about 1850. Here the widowed Polly Woods catered to the "ordinary" needs of the weary mountain traveler — a hot meal, a comfortable bed, and a place to stable his horse. Originally located 150 yards to the west, the building was moved to its present site in 1964.
