AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The ancestral home of President Andrew Jackson is a must on a Nashville vacation. The plantation contains many of its original features and furnishings, including intricately-detailed wallpaper. The love story that took place here between the general and his wife Rachel gives the home a warm dose of romanticism. Highlights include the formal gardens and the house itself, which was built in a Federal style, with a later Greek Revival renovation. Also, there’s a museum with many excellent exhibits on "Old Hickory," his slaves and his presidency. In our opinion, it’s the stories of his relationships—master and slave, husband and wife, president and citizens—that really make the experience the best thing to do in Nashville.
