A Day in the Life: Women at The Hermitage
Farming at The Hermitage wasn’t just man’s work. Come see what life looked like for the women as we explore the lives of Rachel and Sarah Jackson, who organized and oversaw the work of the household and the enslaved staff who supported them. Learn about Gracy, Louisa, Hannah, Betty and the many other women whose special skills kept people fed, clean, clothed and healthy.
Homeschool Days program activities are from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and include an interpreter-led tour of the mansion, self-guided tour of the Hermitage grounds, exhibit galleries and film. Pack a picnic lunch and eat at the tables available on the property or eat onsite in The Kitchen Cabinet Café.
