When Rachel Jackson died suddenly on December 22, 1828, Andrew Jackson had yet to make any preparations for their final resting place. Jackson decided to bury Rachel in her garden at The Hermitage as it was her favorite place. Jackson had a small frame house erected over her limestone burial crypt temporarily until a more suitable monument could be built.
