The Man in Black’s Heritage is Honored – Childhood Home to be Restored
Johnny Cash was born February 26, 1932 and spent his boyhood days in Dyess, Arkansas. Now, that home has been purchased by Arkansas State University and will be restored.A fundraiser for the project is scheduled for August 4th in Jonesboro. Funds raised will be used to benefit a Johnny Cash Boyhood Museum.
The Cash home was located in the Depression-era farming community of Dyess. Once the home is purchased and restored it will be a part of a New Deal Era Administration Building at Dyess.
Set to appear at the fundraiser are several members of the Cash Clan and extended family including his daughter Rosanne Cash, his son and daughter-in-law John Carter Cash and Laura Cash, his brother Tommy Cash and his granddaughter Chelsea Crowell.
Johnny Cash died in 2003, shortly after the death of his beloved wife June.
