We came to see a show but had time through the day to visit the wonderful his stork sites that this community offers. Although this is a small national Park site it was a insightful and rewarding visit and I would recommend it to anyone who is in the area.

Well worth the visit. The 13-minute movies provides a nice overview, and the site itself is interesting. The park rangers do a great job, very personable and interesting. Glad we stopped by!

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site actually consists of several locations, the cemetery, the visitors center, his early house, and the house that was his home for the latter part of his life. The visitors center is located next to his early house and has a nice museum detailing his life and political career, including the impeachment proceedings. The highlight... More

We were looking for local things to with my friend I was visiting and this was a good choice. The price was right (free) as we have a whole week and not a load of vacation money, but this was very enjoyable. The guided tour gives a good overview of the man and his family plus his overall story. I... More

Really nice tour of the home--our Ranger Guide Layton was very informative and was able to answer lots of additional questions about the home. Home itself was interesting to go through---different architectural design than other homes of this period. The museum was small but packed with info, and the video held our attention.

Our visit to the Andrew Johnson Homestead was well worth our time. The park ranger who gave us our tour of the home was very knowledgeable, and considerate the large group to ensure that everyone got a chance to ask questions and see every room well. No charge for the tour and the entire time spent was under two hours... More

The history of our 17th President is clearly presented with a video, graphics and artifacts. Anyone interested in mid-19th century American history will find this attraction well worth your visit, and it is free of charge.

This was a wonderful experience to visit this location. We started at the visitor center where the Park Ranger was extremely helpful as to what to see and for restaurant suggestions. We then watched the 13 minute video summarizing Johnson's life, followed by a visit to his tailor workshop, then a brief walk to the homestead. There the Park ranger... More

Interesting information, both reading material and told to us by the park staff. Slave information along with family history all very interesting. We took the time to do the reading and enjoyed it. All was free, everyone took time to answer questions and told us a lot more than what was stated there.
