3 Things to Know About the Ogle Brothers General Store
If you’re planning a trip to the Smokies and want a true Smoky Mountain experience, you’ll want to make sure that you stop by the Ogle Brothers General Store in Sevierville, TN. Here are 3 things you need to know about the store, the Ogle family and the history that helped to create one of the top stores in Sevier County today.
1. We Are Family
Our Sevierville hotel and the Ogle Brothers General Store are just two businesses within a family of locations that the Ogle family have created to carry on the legacy of Dr. John W. Ogle and his devoted wife Blanche. A hundred years ago, the Ogle family purchased the land where our hotel and the Ogle Brothers General Store sits today. Though the family farmland looks much different than it did in the mid-1900’s, the same family values and traditions are being kept alive on the property by the Ogle family, while at the same time keeping up with the demands of the world that we live in today. When you visit the Ogle Brothers General Store or stay with us at The Lodge at Five Oaks you will be greeted with the same Southern hospitality and warmth that has been present on the Five Oaks property for 100 years. On the walls of both the hotel and the store, you’ll find photographs of the family and a timeline that tells the story of how we went from yesterday to today and by visiting you’ll become a part of a beautiful story that we’re still working to create. You’ll arrive as friends, leave as family, and we’ll always look forward to welcoming you back to East Tennessee.
2. The Experience
The Ogle Brothers General Store is much more than just a place to stop and shop. During your time in the store you’ll have the opportunity to try samples of tasty treats, listen to live music, watch pottery being made firsthand, kick back in rocking chairs with an ice cream cone from Cruze Farm, and just enjoy life in the Smoky Mountains. A visit to the Five Oaks property is an experience that was created for gathering, fellowship, and family time.
3. The Goods
The Ogle Brothers General Store offers a wide variety of items to choose from when shopping at the store. You’ll find outdoor apparel, unique gifts, Smoky Mountain themed items, old fashioned toys, made onsite sweets, handmade pottery, and more. The staff is consistently adding new items for every season and putting out the hottest new products as they come in. If you’ve stopped in before you can be sure that you’ll find something different if you stop in again. The next time you’re in the Smokies stop by the Ogle Brothers General Store and take home a bit of Tennessee for yourself, your family, and your friends.
Visiting the Ogle Brothers General Store is always wonderful but staying with us at The Lodge at Five Oaks will add to your experience! During your stay you’ll be just steps away from the general store, Cruze Farm Ice Cream, Five Oaks Farm Kitchen, and the Five Oaks Riding Stables.
