The John Oliver cabin is pictured in Feb. 2009 at Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The depiction of a cabin on a new quarter-dollar coin being released by the U.S. Mint is a composite design containing elements of several historic log cabins preserved in the park according to Park spokeswoman Dana Soehn. It is not based on one particular cabin, but rather represents features characteristic of cabins from that time period.
