Andrew Jackson State Park
Boyhood Home of the 7th President

Andrew Jackson, 7th president of the United States, grew up on this site during the American Revolution.

His Scotch-Irish Presbyterian upbringing in this Waxhaws backcountry settlement helped shape his character, his military success and his presidency.

President Jackson's ideas about mass democracy and "the common man" greatly influenced our growing nation.
