This house was featured in a documentary about the elder MS Tinney marrying a young man and how close he came to swindling the home from it's owners.

No, it was featured in a show (and numerous news pieces) which covered the elder Mrs Tinney *adopting* a not-so-young man (in his 30s) and how close he came to swindling the home from its owners (her late son and her daughter-in-law, the current Mrs Tinney).

The home is the location of the October 2019 wedding of Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney.
