Andrew Jackson comes alive as this complex man is revealed as you tour his home and the grounds of his plantation. A wonderful gift shop with a most hospitable Barbara to welcome us! All of the tour guides were excellent . It was a great history lesson for us.

Our daughter was married at the Hermitage (Cabin at the spring) on October 18, 2013. Everyone was very caring and professional especially the 2 ladies assigned to coordinate all the activities. The guest spoke very highly of location and tours of the main house. This is a great place to visit and consider when selecting your special events.
