This farm house was built for my Aunt Ann Walker. Ann was born here on the farm in 1888 and lived in the original Log Cabin before moving into the farm house. Ann never married and lived a country 1800's type of life style and loved her farm with all of her heart. The original log cabin was located near the lower spring and is no longer standing and burned in 1953. Ann is buried in the Walker family cemetery along with my great grandparents and great , great grandparents.

Local restaurant menus are available found in a folder provided . For a traditional breakfast with the locals there is Faye's Cafe open at 5:30 am on the square.

Gainesboro's town square has been host to the filming of the 1970 Hollywood movie " I Walk The Line " with Gregory Peck and Tuesday Weld. Johnny Cash sings the title song and several other songs in the movie. It is interesting to see the specific buildings on the square in the movie compared to what they look like today. Also , Cordell Hull a local lawyer , congressman and judge in the towns court house became famous in his time as Speaker of the House of Representatives, Secretary of State during World War 2, founder of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Great getaway!
The farmhouse was situated in a secluded setting surrounded by hills. The caretakers (Joe and June) were very helpful and very friendly. Rick (the owner) was also one of the nicest people you could ever meet. The area, while being secluded, also offered many state parks, restaurants and other things to do. What a great vacation!
