NEW EVENT! The Parthenon in Centennial Park / Country Music Hall of Fame / Dinner with Live Music

The Parthenon stands proudly as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville’s premier urban park. The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals. Originally built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture.

The Parthenon also serves as Nashville’s art museum. The focus of the Parthenon’s permanent collection is a group of 63 paintings by 19th and 20th century American artists donated by James M. Cowan. After the Parthenon, walk the grounds of Centennial Park or visit the Cathedral of the Incarnation, just 5 minutes away. Then head downtown to the Country Music Hall of Fame (or enjoy a walk around downtown) and enjoy dinner with live music! Click here to RSVP. Hosted by Amy.

Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage

The Hermitage opened to the public in 1889. Occupying 1,120 acres, it is one of the oldest and largest historic site museums in the United States. Guests have been welcomed to The Hermitage for 125 years. It ranks as one of the most visited historic site museums in the country. It attracts visitors from all over the world; thus, tours are available in five languages.  Nashville’s premiere historic site, The Hermitage, was once home to our 7th U.S. President, Andrew Jackson, from 1804 until his death in 1845.

Remodeled by Jackson after a fire destroyed much of it in 1837, the mansion is a National Historic Landmark maintained to look just as it did in then. Costumed interpreters lead visitors through the mansion, in which more than 85 percent of the objects are original to Jackson’s lifetime. On the acres surrounding the mansion are the humble log homes where the enslaved community lived and where the Jackson family first settled.
