Linden’s front doorway was copied for the doorway of Tara in the 1939 classic, Gone With the Wind.
The incomparable Percy Faith used Linden for his album cover Tara's Theme From Gone With the Wind.
Jane Conner purchased the Linden in 1849. Mrs. Conner was a widow with 13 children, 7 sons and 6 daughters. Linden has been in the current owners family for 6 generations.
To honor her 7 sons, Mrs. Conner planted 7 cedars of Lebanon trees in 1849 in front of Linden. Five of these trees still stand 163 years later.
Also sometimes called the "Tree of Joy,” these trees can reach over 130 feet in height. The oldest one, located in Israel, is over 2000 years old.
