Andrew Johnson House

Andrew Johnson, seventeenth president of the United States, was born in this tiny gambrel-roofed building with a loft. The building was the detached kitchen for Peter Casso's Inn as well as home to the four members of the Johnson family. Originally sited near E. Morgan and Fayetteville streets, the building was relocated three times before its 1975 move to Mordecai Historic Park. Open to public.

Date: Before 1808
