  • A fantastic National Historic Site! Upon entering the Visitor Center, you'll be met by a knowledgable ranger and a fantastic, decently-sized museum that revolves around Johnson's presidency and impeachment trial. Also in the Visitor Center is a massive cabin, used by Johnson and his family (see pics for various things you'll find). The site is split among a few different plots of land, with the closest being across the street (Johnson's home). The homestead and a few other places are scattered in a near proximity of the Visitor Center. Overall, this site is absolutely fantastic and I honestly loved this place!
  • Great gem hidden off the beaten path. Rangers are super informative. The film is great. Loved getting to decided to impeach President Johnson or not. All building are very interesting, especially for the history buff who likes signs.
  • Ok, lacked details on his attack by conspirators. Needs more indept information.
  • Nice with tons of interesting information. Wish everything want so spread out.
  • I'm proud to live in East Tennessee where there is so much history. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how President Andrew Johnson lived. I've been told that when Andrew Johnson was a tailor in Johnson Co., TN he was good friends with my great, great, great grandfather Col. Samuel Northington. I would love to find anything corroborating that story.
