Tammy Wynette & George Jones Former Florida Estate!â€œThere's chandeliers in every room, imported silks and satin all about. We filled the house with everything but somehow left love out.â€. . . Lyrics from George & Tammy 's hit single "Two Story House". This is a house that started out filled with love, friends, neighbors and good times when Tammy and George lived here, . . . at least until they started entertaining with fairly loud music played by other country music friends and aggravated the neighbors. That caused bad feelings and the couple decided to move on in 1972. Built in 1902 and prior to their ownership, the house hosted such notables as William Jennings Bryan, Thomas Edison and Teddy Roosevelt and later, Governor Ronald Regan. Many country music artists such as Porter Wagner, Charlie Pride and Johnny Cash were guests of the Jones' as well. First built in Lakeland by a lumber kingpin, a later owner decided that the town was getting too populated and moved the house to its present rural location.
