Rachel and Andrew Jackson Tomb Cleaning and Repair Project 2021
We are pleased about a long-awaited and much needed cleaning and repair project for the tomb where Rachel and Andrew Jackson are laid to rest. From now until mid-summer, major cleaning of the columns, floors, steps and more will take place using low pressure steam, laser ablation and chemical poultices. In addition, the copper roof of the tomb will be coated with a sealant to prevent staining of the tomb surfaces. The sealant will make the roof a few shades darker. New sealant joints will also be installed.
If you visit during this time, please note that the tomb will be shrouded to prevent damage to eyesight from the laser ablation cleaning system that will be in use.
Funding for this project comes from the Historic Preservation Fund, private donations and insurance, and it is administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior and the Tennessee Historical Commission.
We are excited to unveil the clean, repaired tomb in a few short weeks and look forward to sharing it with you!

A Nashville tradition that began in the early days of the Ladies’ Hermitage Association as a picnic on the mansion’s lawn, Spring Outing has evolved into one of the major events held at The Hermitage and regularly features nationally known speakers who present on a variety of topics, including politics and history.
The 120th annual Spring Outing will be held virtually on Wednesday, May 19. This year’s program, “Glimpses of My Grandfather, The President,” will offer stories, insight and perspective on what it means to have a U.S. President in the family tree.
