Historic Smith-Carter House Hits The Market
The Smith-Carter House, located in Madison, Tennessee, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 29, 2018 for its association with June Carter (Cash) who played a significant role in country music history while owning and occupying the property.
The property is now on the market with an asking price of $3.5 million.
The property holds significant cultural and historical significance for its connection to the country music industry in Nashville, specifically its connection to Grand Ole Opry artists June Carter, Carl Smith and “Mother” Maybelle Carter, as well as the Opry’s manager, Jim Denny.
The home was acquired in 1952 by Carl Smith, June’s first husband.
In the 1950s and 1960s, when June was not on the road, the house became a hub for her country music community, where she honed her craft as a musician, songwriter, and performer. It was during this time that she collaborated with Merle Kilgore to write “Ring of Fire.”
In 1968, June moved out of the home to live with her third husband, Johnny Cash, at their Hendersonville house on Caudill Drive and remained there for many years.
The historic Smith-Carter House includes a stone farmhouse with 3,118 square feet on 13 acres, large event barn, a creek running through the property, wooded trails, swimming pool and a replica of the 12th hole at Augusta National Golf Course.
The property is listed by Michael Jezewski and Maggie Bond with the Parks Real Estate firm.
