A Tennessee Christmas

My family and I traveled to Dandridge, Tennessee (just east of Knoxville) for our Christmas vacation. My husband, Gary’s parents live in a log cabin off of Douglas Lake at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. I wanted to share some of the beautiful sights of the second oldest town in Tennessee, which had a rare white Christmas (The last time was in 1968).

This is not my in-laws house, but I thought it has the period charm of so many homes in this town. It also sits high atop a steep hill overlooking Douglas Lake.

This unique building was built in 1845 and was used for the town jailhouse. Now it is ironically the town’s Visitor Center!

Perhaps this was the curbside view the town drunk had of the jailhouse! lol!

Some of the fine goods that a store in Dandridge has to offer!

The main drag of Dandridge – Gay Street

Roper Mansion – now turned antique store

This is my in-laws beautiful cabin lit by the golden rays of a sunset on Douglas Lake

This photo was taken by my middle son, Graham. He captured a breath-taking moment.
