Tour President Andrew Johnson's Greeneville home

The 17th President's home is located in Downtown Greeneville.

President Andrew Johnson's former home is called "The Homestead".

The National Park Service restored the historic site to how it looked when Johnson resided there.

You can visit Johnson's home place yourself.

Live@Five@Four's Stoney Sharp shows us inside.

Greeneville then and now

Greeneville was named in honor of Revolutionary War hero Nathanael Greene. It is the only town with this spelling in the United States, although there are numerous U.S. towns named Greenville.

Greeneville is where President Andrew Johnson began his political career. He and his family lived there most of his adult years.

Andrew Johnson was a tailor long before he was president

Andrew Johnson was born in North Carolina but moved to Greeneville when he was a teenager.

He had a life in East Tennessee before he was president.

Andrew Johnson's widowed mother apprenticed him to a tailor when he was nine years old.

"While he was working for the tailor, people would come in and read to the workers and it sort of impassioned Andrew Johnson," Kendra Hinkle said.

Andrew Johnson's history is a specialty of Kendra Hinkle with the National Park Service.
