Take Me Straight To The Following:

     At mile marker 4.5 (From start of tour) you will see the parking area for the Elija Oliver Place Cabin on your LEFT.  Starting at the trail head at the parking area, the trail  leads from the parking area to the cabin, (.5 Miles), along the way you will go through a forested area (gradual increase in elevation totaling approximately 272'), at approximately the halfway point, you will cross a brook that is a few feet wide (note: there is a split log enabling you to walk across without getting wet).  A short distance past the brook we saw a deer bedded down in the tall grass, then on your right hand side, you will see a large barn, then we saw what we believe is a millipede.   

          Elijah Oliver was born in the Cove in 1824. After he married, he and his family moved out of the Cove before the Civil War. After the war he bought property and moved back into the Cove. Times in the Cove were hard but with a lot of love and good neighbors people did o.k. People in the Cove used a springhouse to keep milk and butter cool, they used smokehouses to store and preserve hams, shoulders and side meat for an entire year, they had corn cribs to store enough corn for grinding into meal to last till the next harvest. Buildings were  of log construction until the 1870s because there was no nearby sawmill to saw logs into lumber.
