This is a photograph of President James K. Polk's home, Polk Place, in Nashville Tennessee. He planned to spend his retirement before his early death in June 1849. Polk was originally buried in a tomb pictured in the right hand corner of this photograph before he was moved along with Sarah Polk to the grounds of the Tennessee State Capitol in 1893.
