Listen to This Episode!
Stop by Greenway Plantation, home of Governor John Tyler, Sr., and birthplace of President John Tyler, Jr.
Just down the John Tyler Memorial Highway from William Henry Harrison’s birthplace at Berkeley Plantation, this site is one of the few untouched since the president left…though it is in private hands.
Learn about John Tyler’s childhood and other home in the area, as well as why Tyler’s commemoration of his birthplace may have been delayed by his sympathies during the Civil War.
