The Hermitage

After the conference, we decided to visit Andrew Jackson's home, The Hermitage. The house and gardens were beautiful! We also learned a few things about our 7th president that we did not know. We love homeschool field trips!

        The front of the mansion. I found it interesting that
they brick on the front of the house was painted and
the rest of the brick was left natural.
I found these guys from Florida hanging
out on the back porch
The back door
The cellar door
The view of the side of the house from the garden
The gate leading to the lovely gardens

I thought this grave marker in the
cemetery was very unique
Andrew and Rachel Jackson's graves
