The Parthenon -- Centennial Park Nashville (TN) 2014

The Parthenon in Nashville (TN) is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Nashville's moniker, the "Athens of the South", influenced the choice of the building as the centerpiece of the 1897 fair. A number of buildings at the Exposition were based on ancient originals; however, the Parthenon was the only one that was an exact reproduction. DSC_0063
