The President James K. Polk Home and Museum annually observes Father's Day by offering free admission to fathers. The main house was built in 1816 by Samuel Polk, the president's father. The two-story Federal-style building was a reflection of Samuel's success as a surveyor on the Tennessee frontier. In addition to a guided tour of the 1816 house, admission includes self-guided visits to the adjacent Sisters' House museum, the detached kitchen buiding, and the gardens.
The James K. Polk Home and Museum is located at 301 W. 7th Street in downtown Columbia, TN.
Free parking is available in the lot across 7th Street or along High Street on the east side of the main house.
