Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage – A Boomer’s Travels

February 26, 201914min

Built initially as a two story log cabin, Jackson later built a mansion on his farm.  It is very impressive from both the front and back and laid out on a very expansive lawn.

The grounds around the house are beautiful, especially the garden.  In the garden you will find three graves.  Those of Andrew and Rachel Jackson and Alfred “Jackson.”  Alfred was a slave born on the estate.  He was freed after the civil war, but stayed on with the house until he died at 99 in 1901.  His log cabin is close to the house and remains as he left it.  He was the first tour guide of the mansion.
