Travel & Vacation: Nashville – Parthenon Park


Our family was able to spend a couple days in Nashville, Tennessee recently.  We had a little bit of time to burn before heading to our next adventure so we stopped at one of the parks near our hotel.  The contained a full-scale replica of the Athenian Parthenon.  It was massive!  The re-creation was built in 1897 for Tennessee’s Centennial Exposition.  The Parthenon represents classical architecture.  It was pretty neat seeing it!


Sitting near the statue with the Parthenon replica in the background!


If you look closely you can see two people on the steps of the Parthenon (that is Brina and Karlie).  They look tiny!


The side of the Parthenon.  Can you see us?!


Hanging out on the steps.  We look so small!


This statue near the Parthenon is of John W. Thomas.  John Thomas was a native of Nashville and was the President of the Nashville Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway for many years.
