Former Johnny Cash Home Could Become Rehab Facility
By Kevin Rutherford
A Tennessee property once owned by Johnny Cash and wife June Carter Cash may become a rehabilitation facility.
According to the Tennessean, the Hendersonville, Tenn., property, where the Cash family lived until their deaths in 2003, is being eyed for possible redevelopment as a residential medical facility.
Paperwork has been filed to rezone the area for use as an employment center of some sort — in this case a facility that is being touted as “high-end” and would focus predominantly on helping women with eating disorders, much like the property owner James Gresham’s Illinois facility Timberline Knolls that treats women’s eating disorders, alcoholism, drug addiction and more.
The 4.5-acre property was previously owned by former Bee Gee Barry Gibb but was sold to Lakehouse Holdings for $2 million earlier this March.
The lake house that originally stood on the property burned down in 2007.
