When I was in school, I hated every minute I spent studying history. If I could have been fortunate enough to spend part of a day walking in the shoes of a legend listening to the details of his plantation's development as I did on this tour , I would have had a different perspective and appreciation.
While you are not allowed to cross the thresholds of the rooms off the great fall, you can see and appreciate history of the home and life of Old Hickory. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour the great experience it was. The furnishings are 90% original which is incredible
When we were turned loose on the outside of the home to tour the outbuildings the small hard drive listening devices were well worth using. The restaurant mentioned in promotionl literature is closed. There are many restaurants in the town about a mile away
I appreciate the movie and professional narration not creating Jackson into a mythical historical figure but a man with human frailties who overcame them in many instances while in others he was on the wrong side of history.
