Tennessee State Capitol Building
Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 04:00 PMA commanding presence atop a hill in downtown Nashville, this is an outstanding example of Greek Revival architecture. Built in the mid 1800's by noted architect William Strickland, this is a must-see for history buffs. The building is one of only ten capitols in the United States without a dome. Several areas, including the library and government chambers, have been restored to their 19th-century appearance. For a spectacular view of the city, be sure to stand outside the building during the early evening hours. On weekdays, the staff offers guided tours on the hour.
