Mountain Farm Museum
Mountain Farm Museum is next to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center. It was built around 1950 with a collection of early Appalachian farm buildings. It helps the visitors to see and feel how early mountain farmer's life was like.

We saw live performance of this traditional musical instrument in the Oconaluftee visitor center. I don't know the name of the instrument but it got very nice sound. It was a pitty that I didn't have anything to record the music.
