Ms.Ruby was an aunt of mine.My mother and her were first cousins,therefore Jane was to.
About a month before she died, she gave to me a big picture of the old Jane Wyatt house. She said that it was the only picture of it that she new of that Her sister had made and given away.
She said that she did not approve of the life that her sister lived in New York, the motion pictures, and the follies. You had to know Ms. Ruby..She had an opinion on everything and didnt care to give it.
Please post pics! I've never known of this house, and I was born and raised in Crossville!

Jane was very sweet and treated me kindly, I was 6 years old and thought her log great house [mansion] looked spooky as a little boy. The great curving stairway to the upper floor was quite elegant. I asked her if she had ghosts and she said no and laughed. She did say they were many snakes about and the woods were all around.

I went there as a child. My Grandmother was Rhoda Webb, wife of Rainey Lee Webb, and she took care of Ms. Wyatt for many years until her death. I don't remember when she sold the house but she had arthritis real bad and bought a ranch style home in Lantana I believe. I went there with Grandma once when I was about 12 or 13 so it would have been in 1972 or 1973. I think Jane was about 70 then. A. Lee was her son and he and my Dad, Alfred Webb, were great friends for many years. I loved that old house. It had a gate house and the circular drive went all the way around and the garage was in the basement. The servants quarters were the 2 stories above the kitchen. First house I ever saw that had electrical outlets in the floor. There was a woman that lived there as caretaker for several years but she died of breast cancer. I can't remember her name. I only met her once. Nice lady. My Grand parents lived on Vandever Road near the intersection of Fred Tollett Rd. Jane is buried in the Akins Cemetery there in Cumberland County. It is a shame no one could affords to take care of that old house.

Olin and a partner own the old house now.. My grandma was a hale (maiden name sherrill)and her brother was good friends with the nephew.. His last name was lee or something but my grandma used to go there all the time and tell us stories bout the place it was a mansion back in the day!! Used to be an old truck in the front yard that my granny's bro sold the lee boy but I'm thinking the truck is gone. Wish the owners would fix the place up!!
