Notes
Survey number HABS TN-52
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N376).
National Register Number: 66000722
Significance: The Hermitage and five hundred acres of adjoining land were bought by the State in 1856. It is believed that the brick building was begun in 1818. There is no record of the architect. ... Much furniture and equipment was brought back from Pensacola, Florida, when General Jackson was appointed Governor of the Floridas. In 1824 the chapel was built, most of the work having been done while General Jackson was in Washington as senator from Tennessee. The Hermitage is owned by the state of Tennessee and is under the control of the Ladies' Hermitage Association.
