The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson
Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 05:30 PMGlimpse back to antebellum America and the life of the seventh president, Andrew Jackson, by visiting the home he built in 1835. While living at the Hermitage, Jackson ran a general store, tavern and thoroughbred horse racing tracks nearby, which eventually inspired him to cease his work on the Supreme Court to focus of the Hermitage and its nearby enterprises. This classic Greek Revival mansion retains Jackson's original architecture and furnishings. Visitors view a biographical film and museum exhibits then tour the mansion and grounds, which include original 1804 slave cabins, Jackson's tomb, Tulip Grove Mansion, Old Hermitage Church, and Tennessee Confederate Soldier Cemetery. Also worth checking is the vast plantation site at The Hermitage.
