The mission of the Ladies' Hermitage Association, a nonprofit organization founded in 1889 to preserve the home of President Andrew Jackson, is to serve as a learning resource for a diverse public. We will engage the public through preservation, interpretation, exhibitions, education, research, and publications to increase understanding of the complex issues of Andrew Jackson and his times, to discuss their relationship to issues and events of today, and to inspire cultural citizenship.
The Hermitage is the home and farm of General Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the United States and hero of the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. The 1,120-acre National Historic Landmark site includes Jackson's entire Tennessee antebellum cotton plantation as well as numerous architectural and archaeological treasures.In 1889 in order to preserve The Hermitage, a group of women founded the Ladies' Hermitage Association (LHA) and opened the historic property as a public museum. The LHA quickly began restoring the historic buildings and grounds and opened The Hermitage to the public creating the first historic site museum in Tennessee and one of the first in the United States.
