    The Parthenon...
    It's an exact replica of the Greek temple in Athens, only intact. Inside is the largest indoor sculpture in the United States. The goddess Athena holding Nike, the goddess of Victory. Athena stands 41'10' tall, and Nike is over 6' tall.

    I was very impressed by this structure and statue. I have been to Nashville several times before I found out about the place.
    As of June 2002 only limited viewing of the statue is available, as she is being Gilded in Gold leaf. Should be finished by October 2002.

    Located in Centennial Park downtown.

    despite all the 'tourist' stuff, nasheville is a living, breathing music city... lots of cool, unknown history has gone down there... willie nelson's house burnt down and all he ran in to save was his guitar and colombian...

    I haven't seen this since the 80's in California!!! But, there they were, right on the corner of 2nd Ave. and Commerce and drawing quite a crowd. I guess everything old really is new again!

    Red Riding Hood

    Just 30 Miles NW of Nashville is the cute Mayberryesque little town of Ashland City. The library in Ashland City features murals in the childrens' section painted by none other than........me.

    Hansel and Gretel

    While in the library, take a look at Hansel and Gretel. You will also find Rip Van Winkle, Robin Hood, Huckleberry Finn and the Ingalls family from the Little House series.
