Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage completed its yearlong celebration of Jackson’s 250th birthday and marked the beginning of the 251st anniversary of the president’s birth with a number of events and special offers.
“Jackson’s birthday celebration is always a special time for us at The Hermitage,” said Howard J. Kittell, President and CEO of Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. “From President Trump’s visit last March to former first lady Laura Bush’s speaking at last year’s Spring Outing, Jackson’s 250th birthday year was a monumental one for The Hermitage. I look forward to seeing what the president’s 251st birthday year brings.”
“One of the things that makes me most proud about The Hermitage’s work is how we’ve continued to find engaging ways to educate visitors about Jackson and his story,” said Bob McDonald, Vice Regent of the Board of Trust of the Andrew Jackson Foundation. “The Hermitage is an important landmark and critical piece of Tennessee’s history. Events like the birthday celebration are some of my favorites because they give visitors a fun and exciting opportunity to explore Jackson’s home and learn about his life.”
