Tennessee State Capitol

Recommended
The self-professed masterpiece of architect William Strickland (1788-1854), this Tennessee limestone Greek Revival "temple" sits high on a hill and boasts ancient Athenian models for its Ionic porticoes and towering cupola. Inside are marble stairs, ceiling frescoes, and the restored library, where the balcony railing displays cast-iron profiles of famous figures, from Shakespeare to 1830s-era Tennessee Governor William Carroll.
