Mission Statement

The mission of the Andrew Jackson Foundation is to preserve the home of Andrew Jackson, create educational opportunities, and inspire citizenship through learning about his life and unique impact on American history.

Description

The non-profit Andrew Jackson Foundation, originally named the Ladies Hermitage Association, operates the home of President Andrew Jackson, 7th president of the United States. Our aim is to increase the public’s understanding of the complex life and legacy of Andrew Jackson and Jacksonian America, to discuss their relationship to events of today, and to inspire citizenship and active civic engagement. The Andrew Jackson Foundation endeavors to accomplish this through preservation, interpretation, exhibition, education, and research.

The Hermitage opened to the public in 1889. Occupying 1,120 acres, it is one of the oldest and largest historic site museums in the United States. It ranks as the third most visited Presidential home in the nation, along with Mount Vernon and Monticello, and attracts visitors from all over the world.
