Description

The President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library is housed in the second oldest building on the Tusculum College campus-"Old College". The building was built in 1841 for a total of $4,245.62. Andrew Johnson gave a $20.00 donation for the construction of the building, one of the largest local donations according to the minutes of the Board of Trustees.

Johnson often found himself on the campus where he met with students and developed his debating skills. Andrew Johnson also served as a trustee of Tusculum College from 1844 to 1875.

The Andrew Johnson Collection contains approximately 100 three-dimensional artifacts, ranging from the former President's top hat and political memorabilia to a copy of Lincoln's life-mask, a gift to Pres. Johnson. In addition, the collection contains Johnson's personal library of over 800 volumes, and over 500 volumes of books belonging to his children and grandchildren. It also contains over five linear feet of paper items relating to the President and his family.
