Parthenon, Nashville, TN. The Parthenon in Nashville is the only full scale replica of the original Parthenon in the world. It was built originally as a Tennessee Centennial Exposition attraction in 1896, and was made of plaster. It was so well loved that, after being repaired numerous times, it was replaced with the concrete and steel structure that stands today.
The Parthenon was a temple to the Goddess Athena, and the Nashville Parthenon contains a statue of Athena said to be the largest indoor sculpture in the western world.
