Polly Woods Cabin

Parkway Series #226   12 x 16  oil   $95.

Polly Wood's Ordinary, located at the Peaks of Otter, was built in the early 1800's and operated as an inn until about 1850.  The widow, Polly, catered to the "ordinary" needs of the weary mountain traveler, shelter, food and stable for the horses.  The cabin is so small it would hardly be considered as an apartment for one these days.  However, this bed and breakfast holds as many "stories" today as it held people 200 years ago.
