In Their Footsteps: Lives of the Hermitage Enslaved Tour
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.”
Tours are currently being offered at 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
