The Tennessee State Capitol stands today much as it did when it first opened in 1859 and is a magnificent tribute to the people of the Volunteer State. This graceful structure was designed by noted architect William Strickland, who considered it his crowning achievement. When Strickland died suddenly during construction in 1854, he was buried in the north facade of the Capitol.
The cornerstone for the building was laid July 4, 1845, and construction finished in 1859. The grounds of the Tennessee State Capitol feature statues honoring Sam Davis, Sgt. Alvin York, and Presidents Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson. The tombs of President and Mrs. James K. Polk are also located on the Capitol grounds.

Tennessee’s Executive Residence, a classic example of stately Georgian architecture, was originally known as “Far Hills” because of the beautiful view from the home’s 10-acre site. The three-story, 16-room home was built for businessman William Ridley Wills, founder of National Life and Accident Insurance Company, and completed in 1931. The property became the Volunteer State’s official governor’s home when the state purchased it in 1949 following Wills’ death. To date, nine governors and their families have lived and worked in the Tennessee Executive Residence. 

Don’t miss this chance to tour the governor's residence all dressed up for the holidays!
