Johnny Cash’s Former Property is For Sale in Bon Aqua

There’s a unique piece of music history that’s currently for sale in Bon Aqua. According to The Tennessean, The Storytellers Museum is ready for its next owner. The general store was owned by the Man in Black in the 1970s after he purchased the space to hold, what else, but concerts!

The property has a lengthy history, even before Cash purchased it. It was meaningful to him, though, and the museum maintains that he called it the “center of my universe.” The current owners, Brian and Sally Oxley, purchased the property in 2015 in an effort to preserve its legacy. They allowed visitors to tour the space and see Cash’s cars. Visitors even got to hear live music at the end of their tour.

When COVID-19 hit, The Storytellers Museum closed its doors and now the museum is up for sale. According to the paper, the 2,825 square-foot building is on the market along with the 3.7 acres that surround it. It’s listed at $790,000 and includes a 55-care parking lot, outdoor stage, sound equipment, lighting, a waterfall and more. They’re marketing it as a music venue, which makes sense with its history, or even a retreat for songwriters and artists to get creative and hone their craft.
