Oscar Blevins Farm loop- Big South Fork

Beautiful section of trail typical of Big South Fork and the Cumberland Mountains – Rock houses with drips
Country roads take me home 🎶 Arriving at the farm
The Oscar Blevins Farmstead is located on Old Leatherwood Ford Road in Fentress County, Tennessee. The landscape, nearly 24 acres, contains many features typical of a Cumberland Farmstead in the Big South Fork region. This includes fields and remnant orchards, an 1879 house, an outbuilding and corn crib both built circa 1870s-1880s, road traces, and remnant fence lines.
According to family tradition, the patriarch of the Blevins family, Jonathan Blevins (1779-1863), was born in present-day West Virginia and came through the Cumberland Gap to eventually settle in the Big South Fork region. In 1879, John “Jack” Blevins, great-grandson of Jonathan Blevins, built a story and a half, double-pen log home at this site.
Bluets. One of my favorite wildflowers
