Belle Meade Plantation

5025 Harding Road, Nashville, Tennessee 37205

For much of the country, the historical connotation of the southern plantation echoes a dark time in our nation's history-in the American south, however, these mansions recall a grand, if mistaken time of cultural independence. Belle Meade, the self-proclaimed Queen of Tennessee plantations expresses that delicate balance of pride and regret in its restoration. The imposing 1853 Greek Revival mansion and gabled Carriage House has been restored to its Confederate glory, with tours and guides in period dress. Not to be ignored, however is the 1832 slave cabin that pre-dates the mansion still stands on the property as a reminder of the sacrifices

Athens, Greece isn't the only city with a classical stone temple dedicated to the arts. Nashville's Parthenon confirms the city's place as the "Athens of the South." The concrete replica of the Greek temple marks the city's place as a cultural and artistic Mecca. Though country & western music wasn't an original staple of the original Parthenon, the city has gone to great lengths to incorporate its history with that of the world at large. Today, the to-scale replica of the Greek landmark serves as an art museum featuring not only classical works but also those of modern artists such as Andy Warhol. In the early 1990s, sculptor Alan LeQuire's "Athena Parnthenos," a 42-foot statue of the Greek goddess Athena was added to the structure, cementing its place in mid-South culture.
