YouTube Poster

I don’t usually post videos that look like real estate sales pitches, but then again I’m fascinated by the famous two-story Lakeland house where George Jones and Tammy Wynette lived in the early 1970s. (It’s reportedly the inspiration for their post-divorce duet  “Two-Story House.”) The house was built on Lake Morton in 1902 and later moved to County Road 540A, according to one history. The property is owned by lawyer Kent Lilly, who bought it in 2002 for $750,000, according to property records. It was put on the market for $2.3 million in 2011 and is now being offered at $1.5 million.
