7 Of The Most Enchanting Man Made Wonders In Nashville
There’s something nice about a man made wonder, every once in awhile. It’s nice and encouraging to see the beauty that humans can think up, what we can build and design and carve into reality. Nashville is no exception. These seven wonders are absolutely epic, and define Nashville even today.
1. Belmont Mansion
Adelicia Hayes Franklin had her new husband begin building the stunning Belmont Mansion in 1849, and she completely fell in love with the land and home. It now sits on Belmont University's campus and serves as both a museum and event venue.
2. The Pedestrian Bridge
Forever a Nashville date night gem, the colloquially named, "Pedestrian Bridge" stretches over the Cumberland River and does not cater to vehicular traffic. Sorry, folks.
3. The Parthenon
The stunning Parthenon building is a to-scale replica of the actual historic structure in Athens. It was built in the year 1897 as a part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition.
4. Belle Meade Plantation
The stunning and historic mansion only serves as a museum nowadays, but having been built in 1807 it has many illustrious lives behind it.
5. The Andrew Jackson Showboar
Specializing in dinner cruises and as an event venue, the Andrew Jackson Showboat delivers some of the most exciting experiences in the city - you won't even realize you aren't on land.
6. The Batman Building
Ah, yes. The Batman Building. The AT&T building. It's the skyscraper that truly defines the Nashville skyline, and has been branded in our minds forever.
7. Nashville Capitol Building
The Nashville Capitol Building is actually a civil engineering landmark for its innovative design - which would make sense. It has an important job on its shoulder, and the Tennessee legislature needs a lovely home. Good work gets done here - ever since 1859.
