We stopped off here on our way to the Charlottesville, VA area to see all the Presidential homes there. So stopping off here along the way was a natural addition to the trip. While not as "glamorous" as Monticello or Montpelier that get tons of money through admission, this site held its own nicely. Lots to see and do and... More

Very interesting site to learn about our 17th president. It's actually multiple sites (first home, tailor shop, homestead, and cemetery). Overall it provides a good understanding not only of Pres. Johnson's life, but also the events that were occurring at certain times of his life. We weren't able to get tickets to go through the homestead, but didn't feel that... More

My family and I were on our way to visit a friend and came across the sign for the Nationals Historic Site. We had time so we decided to take a 5-10 minute visit so we could stretch our legs. I didn't expect much but I was pleasantly surprised. The little museum was packed full of interesting information on Andrew... More

When you visit this site, there are not very many parking places in the NPS lot. Park in the free municipal lot and you can walk to everywhere except Johnson's grave without moving the car again. We went through the replica birthplace first, then the early house, then the tailor shop and the visitor center. I am a civil war... More

How fortunate we are to have the home of the 17th President here in Greeneville. Within the city limits, you can visit the National Park, his homestead and a National Cemetery and learn about his lifestyle, his politics, and his beliefs. History is waiting for you in Greeneville, TN.

My son loves all things historic and presidential. This place fit the bill perfectly. Such a quaint little town and all of the buildings are within walking distance of each other. Lots to discover here!

This was a great visit and very well done. The Rangers were very informed and helpful. We ended up with a personal tour of Johnson's home and it was very well preserved. The Johnson burial site is several miles from the home but easily found. We enjoy visiting these presidential sites and learning about the men that led our nation..... More

I knew little of Andrew Johnson, but now I know a lot more. The video we watched at the beginning of our visit to the Visitors' Center was well done, and the Park Ranger, Carol, at the actual home he lived in after he left office was excellent. The Visitors' Center houses the actual tailor shop he built and worked... More

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site is a quaint gem of a spot with great appeal. The home is well preserved and usually guides are on hand to lead you through the rooms and point out intimate details of the president's and his family's home life. There are also plaques at each room giving details of the contents. In addition... More

Ran across this on a trip. It was a very informative quick stop where I learned so much I didn't know. There were exhibits at your own pace a movie and a ranger led tour.
