The Hermitage, Home Of President Andrew Jackson - Review
It escaped a near-disaster during the 1998 Nashville tornado outbreak. The tornado missed the house and gravesite but toppled many trees. These trees hid the Hermitage which is the home of President Andrew Jackson. It is a historical plantation and museum located in Davidson County. Andrew Jackson resided there occasionally until he retired from public life in 1837. Jackson helped found the town of Memphis and began his political career there. His reputation as a hero helped Jackson become the 7th U.S. President in 1828.
The Hermitage is one of the leading, and most visited presidential homes in the United States. Fiery and daring, Andrew Jackson was Tennessee’s first home-based grown president, born to Irish immigrants. Non-profit organisation preserved the mansion with great care and accuracy. It is authentic, and conserved with historic precision. The Hermitage has been enhanced by adding more educational programmes, such as archaeology and the history of slavery.
The programmes are conducted in five different languages for the 30,000 annual visitors. Children play Little League baseball at the Hermitage’s Rotary Park. The Hermitage was one of the filming locations and settings for the 1955 Disney film Davy Crockett. Tour the beautiful garden which was tended by Rachel, the president’s wife.

The Hermitage, Home Of President Andrew Jackson, Nashville Reviews
Great stop in Nashville. The focus is on the President and his wife Rachel and their home. Some fantastic (Jim) guides there keep you entertained while teaching you about the time period. Be sure to walk the grounds - almost no foot traffic back in the slave quarters area, and that was quite interesting!
What a wonderful historic site - it’s privately owned so it’s important to support the Hermitage. Gorgeous 50-acre plantation that holds the original Hermitage and the mansion also known as such that was later constructed. Take the trail on the backside of the property if you’d like to see the gorgeous forest the property is on, the old cotton field, deer and wild turkeys - gorgeous nature! Nice staff guides you around the mansion. Worth the $20/person!
Exquisite Garden and Grounds: The Hermitage grounds are beautiful. I particularly liked Rachel Jackson’s Garden. Ask for “Jenny” in the garden. She was very knowledgeable and knew the names of each and every variety. The garden is beautifully and historically maintained with heirloom varieties of flowers, plants, bushes, and trees from back in the day. I had a great visit!
If you're a history buff like me then you will enjoy it. Extremely detailed information as to who Jackson was and what he contributed to this country. There's more to them than people realize. You are allowed to take photographs but they do not allow it inside his mansion. Not sure why but I respect it. For adults it's $20 per person but I am unsure about children.
Excellent information well described including info on women, slaves, econony etc. Don't miss the duel. It explained so many interesting details about culture and values in the early 1800s. Docents have basic knowledge. Be sure to walk the grounds to see where the cotton was grown, slave quarters etc There is a cart for those unable to walk. Don't have to go to the second floor of the mansion. Be sure to visit the dining room and kitchens accessible from outside and push the button to start the electronic explanation. This is such a great place. We had guests from age 12-75 and didn't more than 3hrs. Everyone loved it.
