The buildings form an open-air museum that can be visited during daylight hours throughout the year. Buildings include a house, barn, applehouse, springhouse, and smokehouse. The museum is adjacent to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center. Located a half mile from the visitors center is Mingus Mill. Built in 1886 and still on its original site, this historic grist mill uses a water-powered turbine instead of a water wheel to power all of the machinery in the building. Two excellent walking trails start from the vicinity near the museum. The 1.5-mile Oconaluftee River Trail follows its namesake stream. The 1.5-mile Mingus Creek Trail climbs past old farms to the Smokies high country. TripAdvisorTripAdvisor Traveler RatingBased on 227 reviewsSee all 227 reviews.Write a review.
