The Hermitage

This room was built during a NAME Mini Weekend held near Nashville, TN in April, 2002. It is a near replica of the entrance hall of The Hermitage, the home of Andrew Jackson and his wife Rachael. The project was designed by Penny Champion, who visited the original and measured everything.

Here is a different angle. the portrait over the doorway is Rachael Jackson; the bust is Andrew Jackson.

Penny even managed to produce copies of
the original wallpaper!

The main feature of the room is, of course,
the grand curved stairway.

Can you believe that we made this stairway from PAPER?
