Interesting history, and joy in being where history was/is made! Portraits of the Governors and Polk's tomb were highlights, as well as senate and representative chambers. A must-see for all native Tennesseans.

We decided to explore the grounds of the State Capital and it was very impressive! The only downside was that some vandals had tipped over some beautiful,old planters and that was such a sin!!!
