Cataloochee… POST 4

Driving on down the road, we see the ranger station.  It has a barn next to it that is on the stop and view list, but we didn’t stop. It was just a barn!

Next stop, the Palmer Chapel.  This is a quaint little church nestled back in the trees next to a creek.  So beautiful!  The booklet reads that they sometimes have family reunions there…and on our way back through we saw people moving in a gas grill and tons of people playing football!

Next up is the school house.  I can’t say that’s it’s a one-room schoolhouse, since it was divided in the middle.  Pretty strange looking to me!

Creek running alongside (same creek).  I can imagine that all the school kids took a dip here after class!
