Survey number HABS TN-52-B
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N378).
Building/structure dates: 1805 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000722
Significance: Between 1804 and 1821, Andrew Jackson and his wife Rachel lived in the First Hermitage, in a structure now known as the West Cabin. The East Cabin is also part of the First Hermitage; it served as the kitchen building. While Jackson and his family occupied the cabins of the First Hermitage, he took an active role in Tennessee politics. Jackson made an impact on a statewide level through his decisions as a judge and on the national stage as a military leader. After the Jackson family moved into The Hermitage Mansion, built between 1819 and 1821, the cabin continued in use as slave quarters on his plantation.Dendrochronology analysis in 2001, by Dr. Heikkenen, revealed the cabin to have been built in 1805-06 and primarily of tulip poplar.
