1. Restoring the Orchard Marker
Inscription.  

After Johnny Cash's passing in 2003, Caudill Drive neighbors Marty Stuart and Connie Smith purchased this site from John Carter Cash and restored its then withering fruit trees, rotting railroad ties, and damaged turf. While relocating the fence line to its new position by the evergreens, Stuart designed the gate that now serves as the site's entrance and added the cross that marks this space as sacred ground. Stuart also honored Johnny Cash's promise to Roy Orbison never to build on this site was kept.
