Johnny Cash’s Old Tennessee Farm Has Been Turned Into A Museum

If you are a big fan of Johnny Cash, you do not want to miss going to the Storytellers Museum and Cash Hideaway Farm in Tenessee. Located in Bon Aqua, it was once a farm owned by Johnny Cash. Cash bought the land in the early 1970s and held weekly concerts at a nearby general store.

He called the concerts “Saturday Night in Hickman Country”. It was a big hit with locals, especially folks who couldn’t afford to go to bigger concerts in nearby Nashville. Cash lived on the farm for over 30 years and called it his getaway from big city life. Cash often called the farm “the center of his universe”.

However, Cash ultimately died in 2003. The property sat vacant for many years. In 2016, Brian and Sally Oxley, big fans of Johnny Cash, bought the land and decided to restore the property. They also purchased that former general store where Cash used to hold weekly concerts. They even collaborated with the remaining Cash family, particularly Cash’s daughter Cindy, to help create the Storytellers Museum.

According to the website, the farm also gives a view back into Cash’s life, “Visitors explore displays in the Farmhouse and Photo Gallery (Cinnamon Hill Gallery) and learn stories of the private side of Johnny Cash. Visitors can also enjoy the restfulness and peacefulness that imbues this land.”
