There is a free candlelight tour of Johnson Home during the Greeneville Christian tree lighting. Tour is directed by people in period dress and is very cordial and interesting.

It may not compare to other presidential sites, but it is still a great place to see. They go deep into his life, and you learn things you have never heard before about him.

This is a small site, but I learned things that, even as a Tennessean, I had not known. Mr. Johnson was a self-made man with little formal education who became a tailor and who served in just about every capacity for which he could run....More

This is a fairly small exhibit, including a short video about Andrew Johnson who was from Greenville. He served as our President after Abe Lincoln was assassinated during a VERY volatile time in our nation.

The 13 minute film seems to skip over a lot of his life. The replica birthplace, tailor shop, and other house across the street were empty and really just a few minutes' worth of time. We walked over to the homestead, and in fairness it...More

Brought my sister and brother in law, who were visiting from California, here after lunch at Brumley's. The film in the vistiors center was very informative, and it was well supported with the static display of Pres. Johnson's life. Having the tailor shop totally enclosed...More

I would check out the visitor center. The exhibits are informative and Pres. Johnson's tailor shop is in there. Also, the view from Pres. Johnson's grave is worth the short drive over there.
