Fibers of Life: Spinning, Weaving, and Needlework at The Hermitage
Performed by Danielle Ullrich
Experience Sundays LIVE, a compelling living history series that explores the 19th century early republic and takes visitors further into the stories of the people that made The Hermitage home. Beginning the first Sunday in June and running every Sunday throughout September, costumed interpreters will bring history to life in their discussion of events from the lifetime and influence of General Andrew Jackson and his family.
Sundays LIVE presentations will focus on Jackson's early life, the women of the Hermitage, friends of Jackson's such as Sam Houston and Ralph E.W. Earl, Jackson's military career, and music of the 19th century. Each Sunday will bring a new presentation and a new learning opportunity.
Programs begin at 1:30 and run throughout the afternoon until 5 p.m. at various locations behind the Hermitage mansion. Programs are free with the purchase of regular admission.
