Guides in period costume welcome guests to the home of our nation’s seventh president, Andrew Jackson. Built in 1821, the mansion has been restored to the period of Jackson’s retirement in 1837. The 1,120-acre farm is alive with historical figures and livestock. Special farm, garden and wagon tours are available. Also on the grounds are historical structures, including slave cabins, and President Jackson's family tomb. Open daily. Tickets: $10-$20.
