NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Hermitage hosted former First Lady Laura Bush on Wednesday.

Bush was the keynote speaker at the Hermitage’s 117th annual Spring Outing. It included a picnic on the mansion’s lawn.

“Looking around the Hermitage, it’s hard to imagine a young Andrew was born in a log cabin so far out in the wilderness that historians still aren’t sure whether it was in North or South Carolina,” Bush said.

“We wanted a former first lady, someone who had lived in the White House who could understand being in the presidential circle the way Jackson was,” said Hermitage CEO Howard Kittell.

More than 500 people attended the event. Proceeds went to the Andrew Jackson Foundation.
