Additional Details:
The grounds upon which the Capitol building is located are perhaps the most beautiful site for a capitol building in the world, being in the center of the city and 197 feet above the level of the Cumberland River. The building is of Grecian architecture, constructed of fossillated limestone, hewn and chiseled from the quarries around Nashville-the blocks of stone weighing from six to ten tons. On the grounds are several monuments and historical markers, including a fine bronze statue of General Jackson.
