The exterior of The Hermitage in Nashville

Don't miss a tour of The Hermitage, home of President Andrew Jackson, in Donelson. The white-columned Greek Revival home dates to the 1830s. Jackson, who served as seventh president of the United States from 1829-1837, and his wife Rachel settled here in log cabins in 1804 and expanded the farm into a cotton plantation.

A film serves as a good introduction to this president and his life. Besides taking a guided tour of the home, you can wander around grounds that include a garden and other buildings and see ongoing archaeological excavations.
