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.

  • Excellent museum and well preserved grounds. Easy access from highway and parking. Highly recommend checking out Ole Hickory's Hermitage. Introductory video is very informative. Gift shop is also full of cool stuff. Things to keep in mind, entrance fee is slightly over priced. Admission process resembles the DMV in regard to speed. Tons of old folk, so you may have to pick your spots to move more quickly, but that's doable throughout except admission. Check it out!

  • THIS is a great way to spend your time in the Nashville area. The museum gives you a great introduction to the life of Jackson as well as the ability to get very up close with items from his life. Old and young will both find something of interest. Touring the house feels a little rushed, I would have preferred more time to wander and perhaps a bit more information from the historical guides. Best to arrive early so you aren't stuck waiting in line too long - that Southern sun and humidity can get to be a bit much (and it seems a lot of reviewers on here from more temperate places are a bit sensitive to it). I wish the Church had been unlocked and that there was a readily-available guide to the off-site graveyard. Otherwise the experience was fantastic. Definitely all the history of a place like Monticello or Mount Vernon without the crazy crowds.

  • It was an excellent historical experience. Say what you will about Andrew Jackson's policies, that was a fascinating time in American history. The tour is very well done and you are given a lot of freedom to wander the grounds after you have seen the homestead. There are trails and paths in the surrounding nature and I remember encountering different history lessons as I walked around. I highly recommend a visit even though its a decent trek/uber from downtown Nashville

  • This should be your choice for 1800s home in Nashville. The home has been preserved in the state of the time after his presidency, down to his house shoes and glasses. The grounds are a nice place to walk around and understand the lives of the slaves on the plantation. Do not miss the garden and the gravestones. The museum is a bit small, would have liked to learn more about his presidency.

  • We spent a wonderful day here learning about our former president. You can walk the grounds on your own or take a guided tour within the mansion. A trail ride is an additional cost but worth it. A guide takes you over the entire plantation in a horse drawn wagon. A very rich history is here and fun for adults and kids over 6 yrs
