The original ground floor contained 2 Parlors, a Dining Room and the Master Bedroom. The second floor has four large bedrooms around a large central hall. The house has nine fireplaces and is decorated with the original period French wallpaper and contains original furniture and family possessions.
In 1831, the mansion underwent renovations. These renovations included adding a wing on each side and two story front and rear porticos.
The new wings added a large dining room and pantry to one side and an office and Jackson's library to the other side. A new kitchen and smoke house were also added behind the main structure.
A devastating fire heavily damaged the mansion in 1834 and the house was re-built to how it stands today including the six two-story greek columns. These renovations also changed the existing straight staircase with the more elegant curved one. Renovations and new furniture from Philadelphia was completed in 1837.
We were told that they will soon be replacing Jackson's image on the twenty dollar bill with a female - Susan B Anthony, however, my vote is for this lady!
