The Forgotten, Abandoned Town in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains
While exploring his native state’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park, he came upon what was an abandoned resort and accompanying neighborhood.
About a mile up an unnamed gravel road inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the back way into an abandoned neighborhood and hotel, some of which was originally constructed more than 100 years ago. In the fully edited film below, Tennessee Wonderland, I explore the houses and the remains of what was once referred to as the Wonderland Club. I’ve applied color correction, balanced audio levels, cut everything down to the essentials without sacrificing interesting moments and most importantly, I made sure to place importance on including a proper ending.
You can see the incredible footage to which he’s referring below. It’s been online for over a year, but it’s just going viral now. And good thing too, it’s extremely cool.
