Cades Cove Museum of environmental history 

Created by the students in my Appalachian History class at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in the spring of 2018, this inaugural exhibit focuses on the natural and cultural history of the Cades Cove community.  Now a part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove was once home to Cherokee people and Euro-Americans, who beginning in 1817, built a thriving community in the shadow of the eastern United States' highest mountains.
