Stories Lost, Then Found AgainIn the years after Andrew Jackson's death, the Jackson's financial situation changed for the worse. The log farmhouse/slave cabin slowly fell into ruin. In 1889, the state of Tennessee entrusted the property to the Ladies' Hermitage Association. They immediately restored the one-story remains of the farmhouse as a monument to Andrew Jackson. Because the history of this building as a slave cabin went untold, visitors to The Hermitage for many years mistakenly believed that the Jackson lived in a crude one-story frontier log cabin.
