Tennessee State Capitol Building in Nashville, Tennessee

The Tennessee State Capitol Building in Nashville patterns a Greek Ionic temple. On top of the limestone façade is a tower instead of a traditional dome. Before the building was finished in 1859, architect William Strickland died and was buried in a crypt above the cornerstone. He is credited with initiating the Greek Revival movement in Nashville. Some people claim his ghost haunts the building. Tennessee became the 16th state on June 1, 1796.
