Tennessee's Parthenon, Tennessee, USA by Leigh (Bella) St John

Tennessee's Parthenon, Tennessee, USA

While this may look like a building from Athens or Rome, it is in fact an 1897 exact reproduction of The Parthenon in Greece, and is situated in picturesque parkland in Nashville Tennessee.

Built for Tennessee's Centennial Exposition., the attention to detail in this building is astonishing, right through to the plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles that are in fact direct casts of the originals that adorned the Athenian Parthenon dating back to 438 B.C., and the originals of which are now housed in the British Museum in London.
