Description
The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson Photos (12)
Customer Photos (1)

Take a tour of President Andrew Jackson's beloved Nashville estate, which has been painstakingly preserved as both a museum and historic home.  

The property, purchased by Andrew Jackson in 1804, includes the mansion, several outbuildings, and the modest (although expensively decorated) log farmhouse that Jackson and his wife Rachel lived in for the first sixteen years of their land ownership. You'll learn how Jackson thrived in farming (with the help of slaves, who eventually numbered as many as 150) while balancing his military and political careers. You can also follow the story of Jackson's life by examining the buildings that were built as his wealth grew, including the mansion which was completed in 1820.

As an avid horseman, Jackson quickly added stables for his racing and stud 'hobby.' Romantics will recognize the makings of a true love story as they explore the garden Jackson designed for his wife Rachel Jackson. This same garden, which includes the same flower species Rachel originally planted, also serves as the final resting place for the Presidential couple.

Admission Price Includes:

  • The Hermitage Mansion guided tour with costumed historical interpreters throughout the house to provide information and answer questions
  • The Andrew Jackson Visitor Center: A 15-minute introductory film about Andrew Jackson and The Hermitage, plus exhibits on the Jackson Family and the Hermitage. (Includes changing/visiting exhibits)
  • The Hermitage Grounds self-guided tour of The Garden, Tomb, Alfred's Cabin, and 'Beyond the Mansion' sites related to slavery, farming, and nature.

It was so extremely hot that day it made the walking thur the grounds not so pleastant. It's very spread out. The tour of the house was not as good as belle meade,only could view the the rooms from the halls through glass. Headsets to tell the history for the grounds , just not as personal as having a guide.
