Bossman and I have been getting back to my church roots since moving to Tennessee. Southern Gospel music is part of that. We so love the old hymns and messages that Southern Gospel share. There’s always ‘singin’s’ and ‘gatherings’ around and we go to as many as we can! I’ll have to share some video of these groups soon!
Elkmont is one of my favorite places in the Smokies! We happened on it one day years ago before the Park started doing any restoration. What a treat to happen on a ghost-town! I got lots of photos. Now they have torn down quite a few of the buildings and are only restoring 19 buildings, I believe, or maybe they were tearing down 19? There was an old hotel there that had to be torn down because the Park waited to long to start the restoration and it was beyond hope 😦
This was filmed after the Great Smoky Mountains National Park wildfires in November 2016. You’ll see the damaged done. Click on the link to open full window video.
