A Horse-Drawn Wagon Tour
A message about COVID-19
After a year long hiatus due to the COVID pandemic we are super excited to announce our Grand Reopening on March 11, 2021!
In order to keep you and our drivers safe we will be operating at 50% capacity, require masks wile on the wagon, and ask everyone to use hand sanitizer before boarding. In addition, we will sanitize the wagon seats frequently throughout the day just to make sure we do our part to stop the spread.
"The Hermitage Enslaved" is a horse-drawn wagon tour that takes visitors beyond the Hermitage Mansion and into the plantation fields where the majority of the enslaved men, women, and children worked, toiled, and lived under the ownership of General Andrew Jackson.
On the tour your Wagon Driver will discuss the story of how cotton, the cash crop and the enslaved people who tended it were vital to the economy and lifestyle of the Jackson's.
On the journey you will have the opportunity to view archaeological sites and remains associated with slavery, cotton, and farming on the Hermitage grounds.
The scenic ride through the Hermitages 1120 acres will let you experience the plantation from the comfort of a horse-drawn wagon.
