: The Greek Revival capitol building of Tennessee was built over a period of 14 years starting in 1845. The architect of the building, William Strickland, died before the building was complete and is entombed in the northeast wall of the building. There are several monuments on the ground: Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson, Alvin York and the tomb of James K. Polk to honor the three Tennessee residents who served as President of the United States. The Charles Warterfield Reliquary also sits on the grounds and is comprised of a group of broken limestone columns and fragments from the former Tennessee State Prison. This image shows the front facade. View on Ohio Memory.
