Christmas at The Hermitage: Andrew Jackson’s plantation was home to two communities: the Jackson family and friends, as well as the enslaved people who worked for them. Each community celebrated the holiday season in their own unique ways. Join us as we explore Christmas traditions, compare and contrast décor, food, games and gifts, taste Jackson’s favorite holiday treats and make an ornament to take home. The Hermitage Mansion is included in the December program.
