Additional Cabin at Palmer's Place - GSMNP

This cabin is across the road from the Palmer House. It was built in 1924 to house the tourist. They already had 2 bunkhouses for tourist. They charged 50 cents a day to stay in one the bunkhouses or this cabin. An additional 50 cents for meals. And an addditional 50 cents to fish in the ponds.
Notice the brick on the top of the chimney turned on their side to keep the water out.
