The Great Smoky Mountains are full of history, and this set of digital collections from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville brings together photographs, letters, diaries, art, and other items in one convenient location. All told, the site contains five distinct collections, including the William Cox Cochran Photograph Collection and the Albert "Dutch" Roth Collection. Both of these collections include photographs of daily life in eastern Tennessee during the late 19th century and pioneer life in and around what is now the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One collection here that should not be missed is the "Tales from the Woods". Here visitors will find the personal journal of Albert G. "Dutch" Roth written during his walks through the Great Smoky Mountains from the period 1924 to 1959.
