George Jones Declines Auction Bids

George Jones declined all bids for his property near Franklin, Tenn., at a public auction on Saturday (July 7). Troy Mizell, a resident of nearby Spring Hill, Tenn., offered $660,000 for two of the available five parcels of land, totaling 43 acres of the 78-acre property, according to The Tennessean newspaper. Those bids, as well as the offers on two additional parcels by other bidders, were declined. Jones’ home did not sell either because the opening price of $1.5 million was not met. Jones had asked $10 million for the full property last year before deciding on an auction sale.
