Once there, your entertaining, and knowledgeable guide, will walk you through some of the remaining structures, as he portrays what life was like there, back in the early 1900's. At that time, the resort town of Elkmont, was alive with Knoxville socialites, who mixed it up with some very interesting local mountain folk, at the ball field, swimming hole, and two Hotels, as moonshine flowed like the Little River next door.
