Before and after pics of a once-abandoned ghost town

Elkmont ghost town is a former and once-booming resort town in Tennessee.

The first settlers in the 1800s were primarily hunters, homesteaders and loggers.

When the national park came, Elkmont’s owners were given leases

The leases were renewed once in 1972, but the renewal was denied in 1992

The buildings were scheduled to be torn down

However, they were saved when placed on the National Register of Historic Places

Today, one by one, each cabin is being refurbished
