Tennessee State Capitol Tours

The Tennessee State Capitol stands tall on Nashville’s highest hill as a symbol of its time, virtually unchanged since its construction in 1859. The structure is the masterpiece of notable architect William Strickland, who passed away during construction and was laid to rest in the building. The National Historic Landmark was built in Greek Revival style and is one of few state capitols without a dome. It was modeled after an Ionic Greek temple. Though classic in design, at the time it was considered innovative in construction. 

The capitol building is beautiful to see and historic to visit, with statues of many important political figures as well as the graves of President James K. Polk and his wife. Its walls are lined with beautiful murals, frescoes, and paintings, while its halls are lit by ornate chandeliers. It is still in use by the Tennessee state government today. It is the oldest operating state capitol in the country.

Practical Info

The Tennessee State Capitol is located on Charlotte Avenue between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in Nashville. To get there take the Charlotte Ave. exit off of I-40. There is plentiful free parking. Free guided tours are available at the top of each hour Monday to Friday. There are also brochures available for self-guided tours.
