Renowned for his performances in Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption and Million Dollar Baby, Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman has owned a 124-acre Mississippi ranch since the early 1990s. The much-loved actor actually built the property on land he purchased from his mother and father. But two decades on, Freeman decided to do something rather unusual about his home.

Freeman has had ties with the state of Mississippi since his infancy when he was sent to live with his paternal grandmother in the city of Charleston. The actor also called Greenwood his home during his high school years, before leaving for Hollywood. But while forging a glittering career amid the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown, Freeman realized he missed the simpler life.
