Palmer House: Cataloochee Great Smoky Mountains National Park, April 2005 As in Cades Cove, the park service has maintained several of the buildings that formed this small community. We stopped at one of the homes, the Palmer House. The yellow building was the house proper, and the smaller white structure was built around 1924 to house a small dining area and kitchen that fed people who camped or stayed in the Palmer’s bunkhouse while fishing.
