The Tennessee Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Tennessee Society DAR.

The Tennessee room represents a parlor in a wealthy American home between 1828 and 1836, the years of Andrew Jackson’s presidency. Jackson, the seventh president of the United States and a Tennessee native, is pictured here in an early 1830s portrait painted by his close friend and painter Ralph E.W. Earl. The mahogany and gilt or golden armchairs where made for the White House after it was burned by the British in 1814, If you look closely at Jackson’s portrait, you can see he is sitting in one of the gilded arm chairs.
