Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Roan Mountain TN

This old building has probably had a myriad of businesses located in it.  This latest business, as shown by the green sign in the window, has gone out of business.  Roan Mountain was established in 1884, when Gen. John Wilder, late of the Civil War, began to construct a hotel up on the Roan Massif called “Cloudland”.  The foundations are still there, but the hotel burned down decades ago.   This building is located right at intersection of the main highway and the road going up the mountain to Roan Mountain State Park.  Roan Mountain is a really excellent area to visit, any time of the year.
Oh, sorry for the tight cropping.  I wasn’t paying attention when I took the picture and got it framed badly.  I keep forgetting that haste makes for poor pix, dude.
