Fort Nashborough

This reconstruction of the original settlement of Nashville is authentic in many details, reflecting the lifestyle of frontier pioneers in the late 1700s. It was here on Christmas Day 1779 that James Robertson and his group of North Carolinians crossed the Cumberland River and founded Nashville.

The Hermitage

The Greek Revival home of Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, is unique in that it is furnished almost entirely with articles used by President Jackson and his family. The quaint kitchen with its open fireplace, the carriage used while in Washington and the family burial site may be seen on the grounds.
