Childhood Cabin
“Back through the years … I go wonderin’ once again … back to the seasons of my youth.” Dolly grew up “dirt poor,” one of 12 children. But her childhood in a 1-bedroom Tennessee cabin was rich with music. Both of Dolly’s parents belonged to a Pentecostal church, and Dolly often performed spiritual songs as a kid. Relive that world in this cabin replica at Dollywood.
