Andrew Johnson may be one of country’s most unpopular presidents, but you may have a new perspective after visiting his birthplace in Raleigh, North Carolina. The house has been moved to Mordecai Historic Park, home to several other historic buildings.

Nerd Trips ABCs
Admission fee: Purchase tickets in the Visitors Center. I think we paid about $5. Check the website for the latest information. Along with the Johnson house, you can other buildings on the site and tour the Mordecai house.
Bathrooms: An updated Visitors Center has opened since we visited, so I cannot attest to the quality of the bathrooms.
Concessions/food: None/limited at the time of our visit. The Johnson house is located in Raleigh, so there are lots of restaurants/shops, but you’d probably need to drive.
Cars/getting there: We drove. There are some public transportation options, check the website. The Historic Raleigh Trolley leaves from Mordecai Historic Park.
Coffee cups (aka souvenirs): The gift shop was small when we visited. It may be more extensive in the new Visitors Center.
