Tennessee Capitol

The Tennessee State Capitol, located in Nashville, Tennessee, is the home of the Tennessee legislature, and the location of the governor's office. It was designed by Philadelphia architect William Strickland, who modeled it after a Greek Ionic temple. The Greek Revival building was constructed over a period of 14 years from 1845 to 1859. Strickland died 5 years before the building's completion and was entombed in its northeast wall. His son, F. W. Strickland, supervised completion of the structure. William Strickland also designed the Egyptian Revival Downtown Presbyterian Church, formerly known as First Presbyterian Church, Nashville. Samuel Morgan (1798-1880), Chairman of the State Building Commission overseeing the construction of the Tennessee State Capitol, is entombed in the southeast corner near the south entrance.
