Brasstown Bald Cabin
This cabin is in the parking lot below the lookout tower. Brasstown Bald was home to many Cherokee before the white settlers came to the area. The mountain is the focal point of a Cherokee flood myth. It rained so long that the world was flooded and a group of Cherokee in a large canoe came to the top of this mountain When the rains ended they settled here and the Great Spirit cleared the trees so that they could plant. The Cherokee name for the mountain,"Itse'y?", was mistranslated by the whites into "Brass" but the real meaning was "New Green Place" (Wikipedia).
