About Greene County, Tennessee
A vacation destination… A city rich in historical beauty… A small community feel in the midst of one of the largest counties in Tennessee… That is what you will find in Greeneville, Tennessee’s second oldest town, the home of the seventeenth president of the United States, Andrew Johnson, and the birthplace of celebrated hero, Davy Crockett.
Come see why we boast of our rich historical past and our breathtaking mountain views. You can tour Andrew Johnson’s early home and homestead, wander through the many exhibits in his museum and be thrilled by his ghost walking through the tailor shop where he worked and where many spirited debates occurred. Visit Monument Hill where Andrew Johnson and several members of his family are laid to rest. You can also visit Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park with its replica of the cabin in which Crockett was born. Encased in front of the cabin is an engraved marker reported to have been the footstone of the original cabin. The park also includes the Visitor’s Center and Museum, campsites, swimming pool and three scenic picnic areas.
Enticed yet? How about visiting historical churches as their bells toll the hour and history unfolds around each and every corner; or the spot where General John Hunt Morgan was shot and killed in 1864.

This property offers 51 guest rooms and a lavish presidential suite as well as meeting space to accommodate up to 300 people.
