During your stay in downtown Nashville, make a visit to the historic Tennesse State Capitol which is within walking distance of Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown. Our downtown Nashville hotel is conveniently located just a few minutes away from the State Capitol so you can enjoy a history lesson during your stay.
The Tennessee State Capitol is home to the Tennessee legislature and the location of the governor's office. The capitol first opened in 1859, and is a magnificent tribute to the people of Tennessee. This graceful structure was designed by William Strickland who considered it his crowning achievement. When Strickland died suddenly during construction in 1854, he was buried in the north facade of the Capitol. The grounds of the State Capitol contain statues honoring Sam Davis, Sgt. Alvin York, and Presidents Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson. The tombs of President and Mrs. James K. Polk are also located on the Capitol grounds.
