Inscription
Andrew Johnson chose to be buried atop this hill, then known as "Signal Hill," which he owned. His family members continued to be buried here in the family plot until his great-granddaughter's interment in 1992. The cemetery became part of Andrew Johnson National Monument in 1942.

The U.S. Army built this lodge based on a prototype design by General Montgomery C. Meigs for military cemeteries. Cemetery caretakers and their families originally lived in the lodge. Today it contains National Park Service administrative offices, and the cemetery's former stable behind you is now the park's maintenance area.

"Whereas, by an Act of Congress, approved June 12, 1906, the Secretary of War is hereby authorized to accept, under the will of Martha J. Patterson . . . the tract of land where said Andrew Jonson's remains now lie, known as ?Monument Hill.'" ? ? ? Excerpt from Deed Book
