For the first time in three years, a presidential home served as grounds for a naturalization ceremony today.

The ceremony was held at Andrew Jackson's home in Hermitage. A total of 40 new U.S. Citizens took the Oath of Allegiance.

It was free to participants and their families, and was open to the general public with site admission.

"To be American, it's a privilege. It's an honor to apart of this great country, and as we all know it. It's called land of the free, and the brave. And this is something that I identify with," said Raili Robbie.

The naturalization ceremony is part of the annual celebration of Constitution Day, Citizenship Day and  Constitution Week.
