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 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.
