Andrew Johnson National Historic Park

Andrew Johnson and his family lived in this two-story brick house from some time in the 1830s until 1851. During these years, Johnson's life changed drastically as he ventured from the tailoring trade into politics. After being elected alderman of Greenville, he became mayor. From then on his rise was steady - to state representative, state senator, and United States representative. In 1853 he was elected governor of Tennessee and was sent to the United States Senate in 1857.

Exhibits inside this Early Home explore the years and events prior to Johnson's presidency. These include early family life and history, Johnson's apprenticeship and move to Greenville, and his political career prior to the presidency.
