Two Room School House

Catalouchee is a town that no longer exists.  Located in the eastern section of what is now the Smoky Mountain National Park, only a few of the original buildings of that town still exist.  The park maintains the outward appearance but the insides are in slow decay.

All of the grades met in the same building with one teacher.  Today the building stands alone with no houses nearby.  The forest and a stream next to it provide the only company of sorts.
