Want to know more about the Parthenon in Nashville?

Add this to your “To Do’s” as we slip into winter! The Parthenon’s Cowan Collection is an incredible array of fine art and includes work from Bierstadt, Vedder, Church, and Benjamin West. The provenance of this 60+ piece collection is quite intriguing and fulfills John M. Cowan’s wish: “……In my humble way to express to the citizens of that State, to some extent at least, the love and reverence I entertain for Tennessee.”


I always say that one of the best values on Nashvilleâs tourist circuit is The Parthenon, and Iâm happy to tell you that on Tuesday, they are opening a new permanent exhibit that explores the history of this beloved landmark, which was built for the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition.
