Reclaiming the PastRarely do facts alone uncover the past. Scholarship, judgment, and analysis all have roles in interpreting evidence, and hints, of long-ago lives. So it is with these stones marking the location of a building that Hermitage archaeologists have named the Triplex. Likely built in the1820s or 1830s during construction of the mansion, its limestone foundation and brick walls echo those of Jackson's home. Along with its location and division of space, uncovered artifacts suggest that the Triplex was the living and work space for many of the enslaved who worked in and around the mansion, serving the Jackson's and their guests.
