Jackson only lived at the property occasionally until he retired from public life in 1837. Enslaved men, women, and children, numbering nine at the plantation’s purchase in 1804[3] and 110 at Jackson’s death,[4] worked at the Hermitage and were principally involved in growing cotton, its major cash crop. It is a National Historic Landmark.
