The City of Hermitage is named for its main landmark, the 1,100-acre plantation where President Andrew Jackson lived from 1804-1845. Costumed guides give tours of his Greek Revival mansion, and visitors can wander the gardens and step inside slave quarters. Fishing and canoeing draw locals to Long Hunter State Park, which also features 20 miles of hiking trails. Pizzerias and fast-food spots line Lebanon Pike.
It also is just minutes from the hip growing area in Donelson and the Providence Mall in Mt. Juliet.
Only 15 minutes from Downtown Nashville, Hermitage is the perfect location for someone who needs the close convenience of the city but doesn’t necessarily want to the live right downtown. Along with neighboring Donelson, Hermitage is one of the fastest growing areas of the greater Nashville area mainly because of the amount of retail and food options as well as the close proximity it shares with Percy Priest Lake, Downtown Nashville, and the Nashville’s Airport.
Hermitage also has its own medical center for those needing quicker hospital access at TriStar Summit Medical Center.
“Celebrating 20 years of providing quality healthcare to Davidson, Wilson and surrounding counties, TriStar Summit is a 196-bed comprehensive facility offering a full array of acute care services, including cardiology, emergency, oncology, orthopaedics/spine, rehabilitation and women’s services.” – Tri-Star
Some of the biggest draws to Hermitage is its location, affordability, and peaceful lifestyle. Kevin Costner even bought a house here!
A short drive south from Mount Juliet stands one of Tennessee’s most famous landmarks, The Hermitage.
The Hermitage is a historical plantation and museum located in Davidson County, Tennessee, United States, 10 miles (16 km) east of downtown Nashville. The plantation was owned by Andrew Jackson, the seventh President of the United States, from 1804 until his death at the Hermitage in 1845.
Considered by many historians to be the best preserved early U.S. presidential home, the mansion at The Hermitage has welcomed approximately 16 million visitors from around the world since opening as a museum in 1889.
An award-winning interior restoration was carried out between 1989 and 1997. Today, original furniture, wallpaper and family possessions give visitors a glimpse of what life was like for the family in the years of Andrew Jackson’s retirement.
