Fakten

  • Elegant in style and detail, it is built on the highest hill in the central city. It dominated the Nashville skyline until modern office towers began being built in the late 1950's.
  • The exterior walls are of limestone blocks, sometimes of great size and outstanding quality, quarried just 1/2 mile away. Strickland also made great use of cast iron, a pioneering technology for his day.
  • The Tennessee State Capitol is one of the most outstanding examples of Greek Revival architecture in the United States. It is considered the masterpiece of William Strickland, one of America's great architects, who moved here from Philadelphia to oversee its construction. Strickland died in 1854 before its completion, and is buried in the walls of the building.
  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1971.
