This is the gorgeous casual country rock home of Bobby and Sandra Lane. The home was built in the Newburg community by Will May in 1937. The home originally belonged to Bobby’s grandparents, Tinie & Keith Lane, Sr. The rock used in the construction came from the Newburg area. It is furnished in country casual which includes collections from both of their grandmothers, Frankie Durham and Tinie Lane. Special collections that will be on display will include Rose Point, American Fostroi, a Santa Clause collection as well as unique pickups and a 1905 Cadillac. Bobby said “I started working on the house years before I returned..” Bobby added “we’ve tried to maintain the original grounds with the barn, smokehouse, corn crib, chicken coop, and outhouse!”

The landscaping, pool and retaining walls were built in 2007 and the grand entrance gate and fencing were built in 2014. The home oversees the family dairy; Wildcat dairy, and the beautiful valley of South Leon River.
