Scenes from Little River Road


English Mountain


In the fall we did a scenic backroad drive to English Mountain located in the western foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.   The fall leaves were just beginning to show their magnificent colors.

Blowing Cave Grist Mill

 Blowing Cave Mill was completed in 1880 and is located near the head of Flat Creek in the Byrd's Cross Roads community.  The mill processed flour and cornmeal.

Fox Cemetery


Fox Cemetery was established in 1787, the site was an early German settlement ground with the first settlers being the families of Jacob Derrick, Jacob Bird and Adam Fox.  A fort once stood on Derrick's land nearby.  Mark Fox was scalped and killed by Indians on Muddy Creek in 1787.  He is possibly the first buried there.

Harrisburg Covered Bridge

 The Harrisburg Covered Bridge was constructed in 1875 in Sevier County, Tennessee.  It crosses the East Fork of Little Pigeon River.
