Finding Beauty Friday

Today I am joining Claudia's "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Dipity Road.
When we were on our way to Shaker Village, in Kentucky we stopped in A small town in TN. The name was Hurricane Mills, TN. DH asked, "isn't this where Loretta Lynn has a home"? So of course I checked and sure enough it was, so early the next morning before we headed to KY. we had to take a short road trip. Loretta's home was 12 miles down the was down a very long winding road and such a beautiful place, that I wanted to share some of my pictures with can click on the pictures to make them larger
The Coal Miners Daughter's front entrance

Loretta's beloved giant carved Wooden Indian that stands across the river from her front door...
A replica of the coal miner's coal mine..honoring Loretta's Daddy.
Some of Loretta's horses and the large pasture where they roam free
The Anderson Cemetery that sits behind the Plantation house. Loretta bought the whole thing from the Anderson family. And agreed to take care of the cemetery for the family. We were running behind and needed to get to our Hotel in Danville or we would have toured the house and gotten more pictures of the cemetery..I will go back.
I have to say that this area, which there is so much more to it, was one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have all the rumors of it being haunted.
Loretta's son was killed in a drowning accident near the old mill.
Be sure and check out all the other Finding Beauty Friday blogs.

  2. So, beautiful. The photos are fabulous. Thank you for taking us on a quick tour. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Oh Molly Sweetie...
    I am so over the top thrilled. I loved Loretta Lynn and I always wondered what her home looked like. I love her tribute to her Daddy. She loved him so. The stories she had told of him over the years. She was truly a Coal Miner's Daughter.

    Her entrance of the home is so grand and so well kept. I love seeing the horses graze in the pastures. Just beautiful.

    I can't wait to see what you share next. Your photographs are phenomenal. So crisp and clear. I feel as though I am looking out the car window.

    Have a beautiful Friday sweetie.

    Country hugs...Sherry
