Home of Andrew Jackson
Nashville’s premiere historic site, The Hermitage, was once home to our 7th U.S. President, Andrew Jackson, from 1804 until his death in 1845.
Remodeled by Jackson after a fire destroyed much of it in 1837, the mansion is a national historic landmark maintained to look just as it did in then. Costumed interpreters lead visitors through the mansion, in which over 85% of the objects are original to Jackson’s lifetime. On the acres surrounding the mansion are the humble log homes where the enslaved community lived and where the Jackson family first settled.
