The former home of seventh president Andrew Jackson lies 15 miles east of downtown. The 1150-acre plantation is a peek into what life was like for a Mid-South gentleman farmer in the 19th century.

Tour the Federal-style brick mansion, now a furnished house museum with costumed interpreters, and see Jackson's original 1804 log cabin and the old slave quarters. (Jackson was a lifelong supporter of slavery, at times owning up to 100 slaves; a special exhibit tells their stories.)
