The Hermitage - Nashville TN Real Haunted Places
In 1780, The Hermitage was settled by Nathaniel Hays and then sold to Andrew Jackson in 1804 for $3,400. Jackson built the brick, Federal-style home around 1820 and came back after his U.S. presidency term ended in 1837. He later died at the home on June 8th, 1845. The Ladies' Hermitage Association (LHA) took over the home to restore it once it has fell into disrepair until 1889. After spending some nights there, the ladies reportedly were awakened by the sounds of pots, pans and dishes being thrown in the kitchen, heavy chains being dragged across the front porch and someone riding a horse up and down the stairway. Apparitions and voices have also been heard. The Hermitage has been open to the public as a museum since 1889.
