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.

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site is well worth the time. They have done a great job in preserving President Johnson's home, artifacts , and legacy. I consider myself an avid follower of presidential history and I was really surprised to learn so much information about Mr. Johnson, that I didn't know. President Johnson has always received a poor rating... More

Stopped by on way from Tennessee back to North Carolina. Cool to learn about President Johnson. The 13 min film was informative. Small exhibits -- can finish everything in under 1 hour. Kids got their junior ranger booklets and they were happy. Worth a stop by.

Just happened to stop there on my way through Greenville TN. Glad we did. Learned a lot about the post Civil war history and what Andrew Johnson went through after Lincoln's death. Andrew Johnson's legacy is not talked about much in history classes but it should be.
