Experience life in Jackson’s Tennessee, from its early days as a frontier state to a bustling and developing commercial center. Guests will get a chance to explore trades and skills such as woodworking and open-hearth cooking. Meet the Hermitage carriage horses and hear about the horse-racing industry in Tennessee. Learn about the business of slavery and the stories of real men and women who were enslaved at The Hermitage. Hear from Davy Crockett about his objections to Jackson’s widely-supported Indian Removal policy.  Then stop by the Clover Bottom General Store where kids can trade goods and play some 19th-century games.
