Lewis' Nesbit residence has been closed to the public for more than a year during his lengthy divorce proceedings with his sixth wife, Kerrie McCarve
Jerry Lee Lewis' residence, Lewis' Nesbit, which piano-shaped swimming pool and his antique car collection have attracted tourists to drive by and see it, has been closed to the public for more than a year during his lengthy divorce proceedings with his sixth wife, Kerrie McCarver Lewis. Phoebe, Lewis' daughter, told the DeSoto Times Today "This is a private residence now. We don't plan to open it back up."
Lewis bought the 15-room house on 30 acres in April 1973 and it's been opened for tours when his fan club was under the direction of Kerrie McCarver Lewis, who is now no longer manages the Jerry Lee Lewis fan club. And so, the building will still be listed as a tourist destination, said Kim Terrell, DeSoto County Tourism Association director.
