No mystery visitors leave behind three roses or a half-filled bottle of cognac as they do for Edgar's birthday in Baltimore, Maryland, but James Polk once was the President of our America. It needs a bit of maintenance, but still a nice stop on the...More

I recommend everyone stop here when in the area. The tour was great, we got the audio headsets and can say it was well worth it. I was there a couple of weeks before it was vandalized and can't imagine why anyone would do that....More

It was interesting and serene to walk around the capital's grounds in the evening. The capital sits on a high hill in Nashville overlooking the city. In a quiet area, is President Polk's unassuming tomb.

Nice to see historic site next to the statehouse. Apparently, his tomb may move for a fourth time to a new location.

Unexpected find on the capital tour. It is right close to the Tennessee copy of the liberty bell which my kids enjoyed ringing.

We visited downtown Nashville on a very busy day and still found this site easy to access and worth the visit. We had visited the Polk home in Columbia the day before. Tennessee has three presidents and pays tribute to all three at the capital....More

This tomb is right next to the capital. Our bucket list is to see all the president tombs, so this was 1 president chalked up. The tomb is very basic.

We trolled up to visit the state capital, and found a few monuments to former presidents. Super cool and worth a stop.
