Cumberland Gap National Historical Park
When the Hensleys and Gibbons families began moving to the mountain in 1903, there were a few log structures that had been built by the tenants on the land before them. They used these to begin their homesteads but quickly set about the task of building their own homes, outbuildings, and fencing. The residents of Hensley Settlement used the folk knowledge of siting and building mountain farms that was widespread through many parts of central and southern Appalachia.--National Park Service
