Butcher Holler Home Replica
An exact replica of her Butcher Holler Home was built on her ranch so that visitors can tour and see firsthand how this American Icon grew up to become the woman she is! Meticulously designed and built from personal studies of the original home in Eastern Kentucky, this house was created to be as Loretta lived in it before she married Mooney Lynn. The original home still stands outside of Van Lear, Kentucky and continues to be maintained by the Webb Family, though, the original home has had upgrades through the years, such as electricity! Loretta Lynn wanted this replica of her home built as when she lived in it in those early years. Visitors will be able to see many original mementos of her, and her family at this gorgeous replica home at her ranch!
