When one thinks of Nashville, our minds gravitate to thoughts of attending the Grand Ole Opry or visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame. But now whenever I think of the Nashville area, I will also fondly remember The Hermitage, home to President Andrew Jackson. Located just outside of Nashville, this amazingly well-maintained and preserved piece of American history transported us back into the early 1800's. The mansion itself, replete with many original furnishings, artifact and even the French wallpaper throughout, is naturally the centerpiece of The Hermitage. The self-guided audio headsets are worth the additional expense. This was a totally worthwhile experience and an unexpected find.

Andrew Jackson and his world come to life at the Hermitage, one of the best presidential sites in America. The orientation film is balanced and points out how controversial Jackson was and still is today. The highlight, of course, is the visit to the president's home, where well-informed interpreters explain how the rooms reflect the man. The collection is almost entirely original to Jackson and his family. The grounds are extensive with the obligatory overblown homage to "enslaved African Americans" but worthwhile nonetheless. An audio tour enhances the experience. At $18 a ticket some guests will find this overpriced but if you are interested in one of the icons of American history it is money well spent.

The house is amazingly preserved. It even has the original wall paper! The guide was very informative and the grounds are beautiful. We spent three hours here!
