Cades Cove in Black and White : From 1830 for more than 100 years, Cades Cove was a great place to live.  It was a community of over 600 residents who lived on the land, off the land and carved the land.  Originally it was prestine hunting ground of the Cherokee but there is no evidence they ever lived in the Cove.  The first settlers was the Joshua Jobe family in 1821.  The early Cove dwellers found a land that was rich and fertile and produced abundant crops.  The deer and bear were plentiful as well as smaller game animals.  The Cove produced it's first grist mill in 1831.  

The chestnut tree in the Cove was important to both man and beast.  Cove dwellers gathered bushels of chestnuts from the large stand of chestnut trees which they ate raw or cooked with meats.  The bears gorged themselves on chestnuts before their winter hibernation.  They were also food for the wild hogs, turkey, squirrels and deer.  Cades Cove reached a population of 685 (132 families) in 1850.  The inhabitants built churches and schools.  It was a custom in the Cove when a person died that someone go to the deceased's church and ring the bell to get everyone's attention and then pause the ringing.  They would then ring the bell for every year that person's life.  The old expression "for whom the bell tolls" meant something.  

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park began as a gift from the state's of Tennesse and North Carolina.  The states began buying the land in and around the Cove.  One resident did resist the efforts of the state to buy the land and that was John W. Oliver.  He fought the state of Tennesse in the courts for six year and finally lost. The last of the residents, those who had sold their land and allowed to live out their lives on the property, left in the late 1940's.
