The home tour was very informative and interesting. The video and reenactment of a duel were also great. I wish i could have spent a day just walking around the grounds. One of the highlights of our trip to Nashville

Very happy we went here, drove about 45 min from our hotel. Tour guides were very knowledgeable. Lots of walking but the mansion is air conditioned.

This site is so well preserved and presented, with a great number of Jackson's own property, that it is a delight to view. I learned a great deal about old Stonewall, both good and bad. Nice piece of history.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
