The Hermitage Holiday Tour

12/19/2013

Tis the season! Come and enjoy Andrew Jackson’s home in the soft evening light. This intimate after hours tour lets you take a more personal look at The Hermitage and the Jackson family. Learn how the Jackson family experienced the holidays and the origins of many of their Christmas traditions such as why the Jackson’s never had a Christmas tree, but hung stockings on the General’s sofa. Discover the reason why guns and firecrackers were holiday traditions, or why someone would yell, “Christmas gift!” As a family man, General Jackson loved to surround himself with family and friends, so visit The Hermitage this holiday season with a loved one and share in the Jackson traditions.
