John Wayne impersonator gives tour of unique Buckeye home


It's a house that shows more like a museum. Every room in John Anderson's Buckeye home has a theme.

The living room is decorated using antiques from the Victorian Era. The couch and chair were made around the turn of the century. The telephone was made back in 1896.

The kitchen is completely decorated with Coca-Cola items. Anderson started collecting coke items with a friend back when he was just 13 years old.

One of the spare rooms is a "presidential" room. Anderson's mother and sister first sparked his interest in President John F. Kennedy when he was just a teenager.

Another spare room is a recreation of a Midwest farm bedroom out of the 1940s

Anderson said he wants people to feel an appreciation for what used to be.

"My wife and I walk around this house continually almost on a daily basis and we are so happy with what we have. We feel very blessed," said Anderson.

The biggest collection of memorabilia can be found in the John Wayne room. From pictures to movies - even a John Wayne Monopoly game - Anderson seems to have collected it all.

Anderson also impersonates John Wayne and knows his movies well.
