The Tennessee State Capitol, completed in 1859, is a classically proportioned Greek Revival building that sits on a hill on the north side of downtown. The capitol is constructed of local Tennessee limestone and marble that slaves and convicts quarried and cut. In a handful of rooms you can still see the 19th-century style and furnishings, a few ceiling frescoes, and many ornate details. President and Mrs. James K. Polk are both buried on the capitol’s east lawn. Guided tours are free from 9 to 11am and 1 to 3pm, but you can also walk through on your own or admire it from the outside.
