Biographical/Historical Note

The E. E. Ogle Store of Gatlinburg, Tennessee was established in 1850 by Noah Ogle (1833-1897), Gatlinburg’s first merchant of record. Ephraim E. Ogle (1856-1936) took over his father’s store in 1916. Until 1925, the store also housed the Gatlinburg Post Office. The Ogles descended from the area’s first settlers and have played a major role in the history of Gatlinburg. The store was torn down in the 1970s.


The collection is in one flat box.
