George Jones’ former home for sale in Lakeland

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — A piece of country music history is for sale in central Florida.

The Ledger reports that a south Lakeland mansion where country superstars George Jones and Tammy Wynette once lived and partied is on the market for $2.3 million.

The 6,390-square-foot home is on seven acres and has 16 rooms, four bedrooms, a horse barn with four stalls, and a pool in the shape of a guitar.

Jones called the home the “Old Plantation.” When they were married in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he and Wynette had parties there and built an outdoor concert venue. Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Conway Twitty and Charley Pride all performed at the home at one time or another.
