Nature Remains


"After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on - have found that none of these finally statisfy, or permanently wear - what remains?  Nature remains." 

Walt Whitman

  13. John - These cabins are the original houses for President Andrew Jackson and his wife Rachel. They lived in these while The Hermitage was being built on their property. The Hermitage is located in Nashville, TN.
