About Jim and Pam Rogers
Jim and Pam Rogers, The Old Campbell Farm's owners, are lifetime residents of Franklin. In fact, Jim's family has been farming in the Iotla Valley since 1879. They live nearby, less than a mile from the Old Campbell Farm, and they love to meet new folks and provide the perfect home-away-from-home for the enjoyment of their guests! In fact, The Old Campbell Farm is the first of two historic properties Jim and Pam have preserved and have made available as vacation homes. The Dock Barnard Farm, a beautifully restored 1890's Folk Victorian home, is located less than a half-mile away. The properties complement one another and can make the perfect combination for larger-family vacations.
Jim and Pam Rogers purchased this House in 2011
Why Jim and Pam Rogers chose Franklin
Jim personally knew Fannie Campbell Tallent, the most recent descendant of the Campbell Family to live at The Old Campbell Farm, so there always has been a sense of closeness to the 1884 farmstead. After the property left the Campbell family in the 1970's, and after a succession of owners, The Old Campbell Farm eventually fell into a sad state of disrepair. Jim and Pam were fortunate to purchase the property, adding the 4-acre tract to their farm where they specialize in growing Angus cattle and timber. The meadow at the Old Campbell Farm produces hay each year for their cattle herd. They especially love the large lawn, the beautiful hosta beds, listening to the burble of the creek from the rocking chairs on the screen porch, and watching for wildlife! But more importantly, they loved restoring and preserving The Old Campbell Farm, a truly wonderful historical treasure!!
What makes this House unique
Whether you stay for a weekend, a week, or a month, The Old Campbell Farm can be home base to explore everything from Dollywood in nearby Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. Go hiking in the Smokies, bicycle riding on marked trails and paved routes, motorcycle riding on challenging mountain roads, and strolling along the country lane that leads to the Farm. After dinner (or supper, as we say in the mountains) sit on the screened porch or take a walk in the meadow to catch the last light of day and perhaps a glimpse of a doe and her fawn.

Old Campbell Farm
We enjoyed our stay at the Old Campbell Farm. The hosts were extremely hospitable and kind! This was a very peaceful property and family friendly. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Rogers.
A GEM of a place to stay!
We traveled from Massachusetts to Franklin, NC to attend the July gem show. Jim and Pam were wonderful hosts. Everything was clean and all of the comforts of home were provided, even some delicious heirloom tomatoes😀�We will definitely stay again in May when we head back down.
Old Campbell Farm.
This was a perfect rental. Excellent owners, impeccable property, exactly as presented. There was complete privacy but it was only a short drive to town. The yard was beautiful and perfect. As a birder, it was a real treat to see so many species.
Quiet, comfortable, 10 minutes from town!
We loved the Old Campbell Farm. Lots of history, felt right at home!
