RVSP TODAY!
Cades Cove Olivers

…to The 84th Oliver Reunion
on 09. 05. 2020 and 09. 06. 2020

Every labor day weekend, descendants of the Oliver family in Cades Cove come together to remember their heritage. We begin our weekend with a trip to the Cove! The family meets at the Primitive Baptist Church for worship, fellowship, and some good ole fashion story telling. This day is a great time to visit your specific ancestor’s old cabin home or just explore the Great Smokey Mountain National park. The next day we gather at the Cades Cove Thompson-Brown Museum in Maryville, TN. We have a speaker and a lot of great family time. This would be the time to pick the brains of the people that made this all happen. Oh, and eat some delicious fixins.
