Description:

Lake Watauga lies at the foot of the beautiful terrace in Centennial Park which is crowned by the classic Parthenon, said to be a perfect replica of the famous Parthenon of ancient Greece. The lake was named in honor of the first settlers of Tennessee, who were known as the Watauga of Cumberland settlers. They came to Tennessee in 1769, before the State was admitted to the Union.
