In Their Footsteps: Lives of the Hermitage Enslaved Tour

During The Hermitage’s Reopening Plan, In Their Footsteps Tours have limited tickets available per Metro guidelines and will only be available at 1 p.m. on Thursdays – Mondays. To provide a safe experience for guests and staff, masks are required to be worn at all times during In Their Footsteps tours to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Thanks to the research of the curatorial staff at The Hermitage, tour guides are now able to tell stories highlighting the lives of the enslaved men and women who lived here during the life of Andrew Jackson and beyond his death. Visitors will learn how vital the lives of the enslaved were to the operation of the farm, the harsh reality of the enslaved system and how these men and women endured until gaining their freedom.

An experienced guide will lead you on this walking tour through The Hermitage grounds and witness the places enslaved men, women and children were born, lived, worked and died as you walk “In Their Footsteps.” Tickets also include access to The Hermitage mansion.

Tours are currently being offered at 1 p.m. Thursdays – Mondays. Your ticket also includes a tasting of five wines* at our onsite tasting room, Natchez Hills Winery at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage.
