On the way up to Wayah Bald, highest mountain in the western North Carolina Appalachian Mountains, this scenic cabin still stands
after years of storms and snowfalls.
Captured here on the day after the first snowfall of the winter season
and presented in a fine art oil painting style.
Built in 1916, Wilson Lick was the first ranger station
of the newly formed Nantahala National Forest.
The Forest's first District ranger, Grady Siler,
lived at Wilson Lick from 1917 through 1918.
In 1929, Gilmer Setser lived at Wilson Lick
with his wife and daughter.
His forest service duties included maintaining
telephone lines and manning the wooden fire tower
that he helped to build on Wayah Bald.
In 1937 and 1938, Wayah Bald Game Refuge Manager
George Crawford and his wife lived at Wilson Lick nearly year-round.
A front porch and garage were constructed sometime in the 1940s.
The porch was subsequently removed.
