Land Acquisition
When the Government was purchasing the land that would eventually become the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Each property needed to be identified 5x8-index cards were made listing information about the property such as property owner, location, and purchase price. The cards do not tell who was living in the houses, or what families were living on the property at the time of purchase.
Cards were housed at the archives in the GSMNP library.
