Structures deemed of no historic value to be removed from Elkmont area of Great Smoky Mountains NP

Demolition sounds will be heard in the Elkmont area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park as crews begin removing ten structures that were deemed no longer significant to the historic district.

The removal of these structures, located near the former Wonderland Hotel, marks the end of major demolition work in the Elkmont area that began in 2010 as specified in the 2009 Memorandum of Agreement among the National Park Service, Tennessee State Historic Office, and Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. Later in 2018, park crews will begin preservation of the Sneed, Smith, Higdon, and Swan cabins in the Daisy Town area.
