Storytellers Hideaway Farm & Museum

Located a short drive west of Nashville on I-40, this was the place Johnny Cash used to escape from public life. Now the Storytellers Hideaway Farm and Museum in Bon Aqua, TN is a must-stop for anyone interested in knowing more about the man behind the country music icon, as well as the region’s rich history.

The Museum:

This is a loving restoration of a building that Johnny Cash once owned. He was the benefactor of the creation of a little stage here, and supported small intimate concerts for the community – including the “Saturday Night In Hickman County” guitar pulls.

The Farm:

Revolutionary war hero Andrew Jefferson Ponder received a 500-acre land grant in 1806. He was the first resident in the area, settling the land, and opening a log tavern – Ponder’s Inn. He built a grist mill and general store.

In 1823, William B. Ross bought the land from Ponder, who died in 1832.

William Loch Weems was born in Maryland, and moved to Hickman County in 1826. In 1837, he bought the property from Ross, as well as the springs up on the hill, and continued buying land until he had 1800 acres.
