Bud Ogle Cabin Snapshot

Built in the late 19th century by Noah Wilson “Bud” Ogle, the Bud Ogle Cabin provides a

sense of history to Murphy, North Carolina. The cabin was built by Bud Ogle for his

family which included his wife, Lucinda Ogle- a practicing midwife, along with their

eight children.

Due to its remote location within the mountains, visitors are transported to another

time when agriculture was the main source of income for most and the environment was

still considered a wild and dangerous place to colonists. In multiple online spaces,

visitors report feeling a sense of wonder and nostalgia, despite having never lived in

such a time.
