Parthenon

See this symbol of ancient Greece -- in Nashville’s Centennial Park. This full-scale replica of the Parthenon was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tennessee’s statehood. Nashville’s reputation as the “Athens of the South” (the city is home to many colleges and universities) sparked the idea for the replica.
