Both of Jack and Anna Manahan's homes still stand and are private residences.  They primarily lived in Charlottesville, near the grounds of the University of Virginia on University Circle.  They also owned Fairview Farm near Scottsville.  Fairview was heavily damaged by fire about 10 years ago.

At least they didn't turn them into tacky tourists traps.

Here is an image of the front of the University Circle home from "The Hook", a local Charlottesville journal.

I lived in Charlottesville from 1973-1977 and the house was obscured by trees, an untended garden that had run wild.  I saw Anna Anderson and her husband at the local public library a few times.  They had an old car.  I always wondered why the city of Charlottesville did not require them to tend their yard.  University Circle was a pleasant street in a neighborhood of wealthier streets with larger houses.

Because it wasn't the Soviet Union, was my first thought, as a Norwegian. Do US municipalities really intervene that minutely in people's right to manage their private propety as they wish to?
Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

The short answer is yes if enough residents complain to the authorities.

I would expect that the local authorities could give orders to the owners to clean up the yard if it was so poorly maintained that it became a public health hazard or a fire risk. That is certainly the case in Australia.

And that is what happened.  People complained and the city ordered Manahan to clean up the property.

The idea of a "free" nation may be misleading. Fact is, from small municipalities up to the federal government, there are millions of pages of regulations and rules that restrict individual's and group's "rights" to do whatever they want (or not do) with their owned property. From height of trees, to height of grass, to color of siding, to size of mailbox, etc etc etc, nearly every minute detail has a regulation. That's the work of the government bureaucracies whose main mission is to control how people live. Trump has promised to curb that onslaught of regulations and hopefully roll back many.

And of course there are "Homeowners Associations" as well.  They aren't the government, but they CAN fine you (though not every neighborhood has one).

Generally, the government doesn't step in unless your place belongs on that Hoarders show.  But a Homeowners Association can, in theory, fine you for leaving your Christmas lights up too long.

That's right Herr Kaiser.  How could I forget that Trump/Drumpf is gonna make America great again, really great, really, really great!; good grief!

This era of  'alternative facts' , 'fake news' , 'gaslighting' , etc .... just makes me think of Anna Anderson and her adherants.
