Tennessee’s own Andrew Jackson, the seventh President of the United States, was nicknamed Old Hickory. He earned the nickname because of his toughness which reflect the hardness and durability of hickory wood. Early settlers to the same Tennessee region where the wood is harvested, prized hickory’s strength. Hickory’s large, open knots and range in color make it remarkable as well as utilitarian. These words aptly describe eras past, the courageous people of those times, and the qualities desired for hardwood flooring for your home.
