The Parthenon: In Nashville!

I think many visitors are surprised to see such an awesome piece of architecture in Nashville. It was built as a temporary piece in 1897 for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Eventually most of the facade was replaced with material that would stand the test of time (and the extremely hot humid summers in TN.) Inside is an beautiful replica of Athena. A definite must to see in Nashville!
