The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jacksonhttp://www.thehermitage.com
The mission of the Ladies' Hermitage Association is to preserve the home of Andrew Jackson, to create learning opportunities, and to inspire citizenship through experiencing the life and unique impact of Andrew Jackson. Purchased by Jackson in 1804, the Hermitage has most of the original buildings and land once owned by Andrew Jackson and operated as a cotton plantation. Beyond the mansion, the Hermitage is comprised of the Andrew Jackson Visitor Center, the Hermitage Church, and Tulip Grove Mansion as well as slave quarters, dependencies, gardens, and pastures. The property today is largely the same as the plantation Jackson returned home to after his Presidency concluded in 1837. Volunteers serve the organization by providing direction, information, and transportation to visitors all over the property. Other areas of service include gardening and special events and there are opportunities for volunteers with professional or trade skills to get involved as well. Group volunteer projects are encouraged and can be detailed to fit your organization. Please check out our opportunities and let us know how you would like to serve. We are honored to work with the local community as we strive to share this national story.
