Carter Shields Cabin Canvas Wall Prints

Carter Shields Cabin Canvas Wall Prints The Carter Shields Cabin is believed to have been built in the 1830s. Of all the most visited landmarks in Cades Cove, this charming scene of the Carter Shields cabin is said to be the most photographed. It is a perennial favorite of out-of-state tourists and, for those shopping at the local art galleries and shops, is often the most requested by those looking for a beautiful memento of their visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. Steve has chosen to paint this scene at its most stunning when the little dogwood tree is in full bloom. The Carter Shields Cabin stands at the last homestead on the Cades Cove driving loop. George Washington “Carter” Shields lived in his Cades Cove cabin from 1910 through 1921. A shield was crippled in the Battle of Shiloh. Dogwood trees bloom here in the early spring making this cabin one of the loveliest in the Cades Cove. Robert Shields moved his family into Cades Cove in the early 1820s to avoid a typhoid epidemic at Chilhowee. He was active in the Baptist Church and served as Justice of the Peace and member of the County Court. As to this quaint little cabin’s history, it was built after Washington “Carter” Shields bought the land in 1910. Decades before that, Mr. Shields was wounded and crippled for life in the Civil War at Shiloh. He married after the war and moved to Kansas. He came to the Cove in 1906 before purchasing this piece of land. One would think that an old soldier would find lifelong contentment here, but he moved away after only eleven years.
