Tennessee State Capitol Building
A commanding presence atop a hill in downtown Nashville, the Tennessee State Capitol 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. Several areas, including 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 generally on the hour, except at noon. Groups need to telephone ahead and make reservations. Please note: the interior is closed to the public for renovations through the end of 2012, but the exterior and grounds are still great visits.
Definitely worth seeing. It's supposed to be haunted (at least according to the iphone ghost tour we were listening to)... listen for arguments in the walls! We didn't hear any, but the kids had fun listening anyway.
