The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is made up of over 520,000 acres, many of which were once occupied by native Americans and settlers throughout time. As each acre was purchased and added to the protected land that would turn into America’s most loved national park, traces of the past began to slowly fade. The flora of the park slowly started to blanket the slivers of Smoky Mountain life even before the national park was formed and today, most of it is completely hidden. However, there are many gems of yesteryear that can still be found throughout the Smokies, some in plain sight but many can only be seen if you take time to look a little closer.
