Repica of Andrew Johnson's Tailor Shop - Rutledge, TN

Repica of Andrew Johnson's Tailor Shop - Rutledge, TN

Yesterday, we looked at Johnson's actual tailor shop in Greeneville. Here is a replica of another.

Located on the grounds of the Grainger County Courthouse in Rutledge Tennessee is this brick Replica of President Andrew Johnson's first Tailor Shop. Johnson started out as an indentured apprentice to a tailor in Greeneville, but ran away and started his own practice at this location. The small brick building was shared with the local sheriff for about six months. After Johnson's former employer died, he moved back to Greeneville. The replica was built in 1976.
