We visited Greeneville and had a great time. Both of Andrew Johnson's homes were very interesting. The tour guide at the Homestead was very informative and friendly. The visitor center had many nice exhibits. The cemetery reminded me of a smaller Arlington.

This is a great opportunity to learn about a little known president. You check in for the tour at the visitor center. They have moved Johnson's tailor shop (his occupation before politics) into the visitor center and it's pretty cool to see. There is also...More

Our party of 4 ended up as the only people in the 3:30 tour on a Saturday afternoon of President Andrew Johnson's Homestead. Our ranger guide, Carol Quinn, was most informative. She has an obvious passion for her work. On her own initiative, she continues...More
