"Leconte Lodge Trip with Georgia Trail Club" . Herbert M. Webster Photograph Collection, University of Tennessee Digital Collections.
I thought today would be another great day to share some more vintage photos of the lodge. Friends of the Smokies shared these wonderful photos by Herbert Webster and I just add to pass them along. Check out the Univeristy of Tennessee's Digital Library.
"LeConte Lodge." Herbert M. Webster
We have a few old photos hanging around the lodge. The kitchen photograph was one that is hanging in our dining room. Someone asked the order the buildings were built. I know that the first lodge was Lodge #1 and it was built in the 30s. I am sure there are a lot of folks who have done research and will be happy to add their knowledge to the comments. I know the office was built in the 70s. Any other information would be great. As I sit and type this post, it is extremely windy and rainy. It is a great day to study the history of the lodge. The high yesterday was 54º with a low of 41º. Chris and I will be heading down the mountain this evening. We have family to visit. Nathan will be taking over for a bit. I am sure he is saving some great tales to tell. Have a great weekend and happy hiking.
