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.

Such an amazing site to visit. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I really appreciate that an audio guide is included in the admission price with three separate tours included. We didn't have as much time at the site as I would have allowed. We took about 2 hours, but if you wanted to listen to every stop it probably would have taken at least 4. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful. This was one of the best choices we made on our trip to Nashville.
Amazing! We went in early November and it was amazing,the grounds are beautiful! We want to go again in spring to see everything in bloom. The garden was my favorite, and the audio tour was great and easy to use! Great for kids and the house... Wow a real piece of history. Great gift shop and a little restaurant, also a great place to bring kids!
It is a good idea to watch the documentary before heading out on your tour of the estate. Then, pick up your audio tour device. It would be nice to have ear buds for the audio tour. The grounds are vast, so we got plenty of exercise on the paved walks and on the path through the woods. The museum does a great job honoring the memory of the enslaved people who once lived, worked and died on the Jackson estate. It was a sad and tragic existence for them. We were told the house is staged as it would have been in 1837. It is lovely. The history of the house itself is very interesting. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our visit to the home of our country's 7th president.
Excellent place for out of town people to visit. Outside of Music street, this was my favorite spot. The museum was interesting and the mansion was as well. The people working there are very knowledgeable. Plan on spending 3 hours or so to experience everything they have.
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!
