Nearly every facet of Jackson’s life revolved around his mansion at The Hermitage. It served as much as an office, gathering hall and place for entertaining as it did as his home.
The mansion has now been carefully restored with most of Jackson’s original belongings.
The Hermitage garden and grounds hold the stories of the livelihood and lifestyle of the Jackson’s family; foremost is The Hermitage cotton plantation.
Today, the grounds continue to offer a retreat for visitors as they did for Jackson and his family.
Andrew Jackson visited Rachel’s tomb everyday in the gardens she so loved until his health made it unmanageable.
Today, Jackson rests alongside Rachel and other family members here at The Hermitage.
