Hermitage Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 26 photos

The Hermitage is the home of America's seventh President, Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson built the Hermitage himself, and he and his family lived here. The interior contains the exact same wallpaper that Andrew Jackson himself chose for the walls, as well as many artifacts from he and his family.

The Garden

The garden was designed by William Frost, an English gardener. The plants currently in the garden are the same types of plants that one would find in a garden during the 1800s, Andrew Jackson's time.

Andrew Jackson's Grave

Not only did Andrew Jackson live here, he also died and is buried here. The picture shows his tomb. He and his wife are both buried under this monument.
