You can feel the spirit of ''The Man in Black'' as you traverse the private driveway towards the iconic house at 8736 Nye Road in Casitas Springs, California. Johnny Cash built the 4,500 square foot home in 1961 as an escape from the raucous fame of his rock 'n roll lifestyle. He and his wife Vivian envisioned the rural estate - tucked in the hills between Ventura and Ojai - as a serene getaway for the couple and their three daughters for many years to come.If you know the rest of the story, you'll know that the homestead was not enough to save them from the forces that were starting to torment Johnny and threaten their marriage.
