  • Modeled after a Greek iconic temple the Tennessee state capital is a fine example of stone and iron engineering/ construction and Greek Revival architecture. Well worth the time to stop by and admire. The building is also registered as a National Historic landmark. Equally worthwhile is entering the structure and taking a self guided tour of the old supreme court rooms (they know meet in their own building on the same campus).
  • Simple, small, yet elegant building that offers beautiful views of the city, a friendly staff, a great deal of history including the tomb of James K. Polk. I would allow an hour to see the beautiful grounds and the capitol building itself. The capitol also offers a great workout with all the steps if you choose to forego the tunnel entrance or if you decide to walk the grounds.
  • The Tennessee State Capitol is a beautiful building that I recommend visiting if you have the opportunity.
