Alfred Reagan lived along the Roaring Fork in the Smoky Mountains in the late 1800s and early 1900s. His home is different than the other settlers cabins in this area in that it is constructed with sawn boards and painted. Supposedly Reagan chose the colors from a limited offering in the Sears catalog.

Reagan was an industrious soul who built a grist mill and store to serve the Roaring Fork community. The mill, pictured below, still stands near his home.

The back room at the Reagan Place features a turquoise painted door that makes this room seem so mysterious to me. I posed my stepson Dylan here one day to add to the mystery of the Reagan Place.
