Oconaluftee Visitor Center is at the south park entrance at 1194 Newfound Gap Rd. (US 441) near Cherokee, N.C. Exhibits and information about the park are provided. Next to the center is the Mountain Farm Museum, which captures the feel of a typical 1880s Southern Appalachian farm. A small farmhouse displays the essentials of a late 19th-century pioneer home. A barn, apple house, springhouse, smokehouse and working blacksmith shop also can be explored.
