they had a vintage baseball game on the grounds which was fun to watch. They have a league that plays once a month. We went on a Sunday and it was great to walk around and tour the mansion.$20 per person for the tour so an inexpensive thing to do and learn about history.

While Andrew Jackson is one of the more controversial presidents in American history, it's still a must for any history buff. The grounds are very scenic.

We took a guided tour through Viator that included this home. We were disappointed that we couldn't take photos inside the home, but it was lovely and the tour was well conducted.

It's worth visiting this place for it's history, for a glimse in the life of the rich and of the slaves. It is well preserved and the tours are great.

Go early to avoid the heat of the day. We enjoyed the house tour as well as exploring the grounds and gardens. The house guides are very knowledgeable and the home is well preserved. Original furnishings and art.

Walking into American history, you'll get a new understanding of the way the Civil War unfolded. Special exhibitions with costumed presenters on the weekends are very educational.

The property and mansion tour is tastefully done. Tour staff members are very knowledgable and encourage you to ask any / all questions. A very nice property, worth a stop and you can spend as much or as little uptime along the way.
