History

The Hermitage-Rippy Estate was built by Mr. H.A. Rippy, Jr. in 1986. As a child, he had spent a significant amount of time studying and admiring President Andrew Jackson’s life. Mr. Rippy dreamed of owning a home like that of President Jackson’s Hermitage. That dream was realized when he became a successful businessman and insurance executive. Mr. Rippy passed away in 1998, and the family home has now become a representation of Southern hospitality for many Alabama couples on their wedding day.

    So great and gorgeous grounds. Perfect for an indoor or outdoor ceremony and reception. Rentals are done on the property and are very reasonable. We also used Jessie Faulkner as our "day of" wedding planner and she was wonderful, she made sure everything went smoothly and perfectly, if we had a crisis I never knew about it! They are very accomodating and I would definitely reccommend the Hermitage-Rippy!
