President's Day is more than a day off work or school. It's the day the nation honors all past presidents of the United States.
Andrew Jackson, the country's seventh president, lived in Nashville at The Hermitage, making it a perfect place to soak in some history on President's Day.
"He was such a dramatic departure from the first six presidents that we had that every president that came after Andrew Jackson had more power than they would have before he was in office," James Yasko, Education Director at the Hermitage, told Nashville's News 2.
The Hermitage is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
Other options for celebrating American history this President's Day are visits to the Carter House, Carnton Plantation or the Lotz house.
Also, the Emancipation Proclamation is on display at the Tennessee State Museum.
Monday is the last day to see it in the south before it's returned to Washington D.C.
The display is free to the public, but visitors can reserve a time slot to see it.
The exhibit will be replaced by an exact replica as part of a new exhibit called "Discovering the Civil War." The exhibit runs through September 1.
