Minnie Pearl Home Sells For $1.1 Million

Having been vacant for almost three years, the 13-room home of the late Minnie Pearl is being sold to a Nashville couple for $1.1 million. When Minnie, whose real name is Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon, passed away in 1996, her house, which rests on five acres, went to her husband of 50 years Henry Cannon. Cannon died in 1997. The new owners Douglas and Nan Frazer Smith plan to redecorate with high hopes of making the Nashville community proud, as well as Ms. Minnie’s fans appreciate the landmark even more.
