Did you know?

John & Yoko’s owned a Palm Beach Mansion!

In 1980, the same year John Lennon was shot and killed outside his Dakota apartment building in New York City, he and wife, Yoko Ono, bought a beautiful oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach, Florida for $725,000. They only owned the house for six months, long enough to decide how they wanted to renovate it, before they had to return to New York. Sadly, it was the only time Lennon was able to enjoy it, as he was shot down before being able to return to Florida. Later after John’s death, Yoko returned to Palm Beach to complete the renovations and sold it in 1986. The home has recently been put on the market by its current owners for $47.5 million.
