Cable Mill Historic Area & Cades Cove Visitor Center
Cable Mill Historic Area
One of the most popular stops on the Cades Cove tour is the one at Cable Mill. Corn meal and molasses are sometimes available. Of course the main attraction of the Cable Mill area is the outdoor displays. The Cable Mill is definitely one of the most historic pieces in Cades Cove. Mills were important to the people of Cades Cove, and entire homesteads were centered around their ability to use the mills. Since so much time was spent at the mill, it became a place where families would gather and friends would sit and spend time with one another. After seeing the Cable Mill, be sure to stop by the Cades Cove Visitor Center.
Cades Cove Visitor Center
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has a visitors center at the Cable Mill that is open from mid-April through October. The Cades Cove Visitor Center is a great place to stop after a tour of the Cades Cove Loop Road. The visitor center has a variety of things for sale, and it’s a great place to learn even more about the area. At the visitor center, you can purchase things like books, post cards, maps and clothing items. Sometimes, corn meal, molasses and special jams and jellies are available. Also there, you’re able to talk with National Park Service park rangers who can give you inside information about the Cades Cove area, hiking trails and all things about the national park.
