Country Music Hall of Fame: Nashville is the home of country music. What better place to build a museum dedicated to country music? In 1961 the Country Music Association established the Country Music Hall of Fame. The first three inductees into the Hall of Fame were Jimmie Rodgers, Fred Rose, and Hank Williams. Two years later the CMA commissioned the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to be built in Nashville’s Music Row at Music Square East and Division Street. Also in 1963, Tennessee chartered the Country Music Foundation to operate the museum. In 2000 the Hall of Fame and Museum was moved from its Music Row location to a $37 million facility in downtown Nashville on 5th Avenue. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums.

Warner Parks:

The Edwin Warner Park and the Percy Warner Park are two large, public parks in Nashville. They are part of a park system that Nashville’s Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation manages. The parks cover 2,684 acres, making them the largest combined municipal parks in Tennessee. In 1927, Percie Warner Lea donated the land to the City of Nashville. In 1930, the Nashville Board of Park Commissioners named the parks after Percie’s father Percy and uncle Edwin, who were both former members of the commission. Today, the Warner Parks are great for biking and running. They also contain equestrian trails, athletic fields, and a golf course.

Belmont Mansion:

The Belmont Mansion is a historic mansion in Nashville. Today, the mansion operates as a museum on Belmont University’s campus. The mansion was built between 1849 and 1853 as an Italian villa style summer home for Adelicia Hayes Franklin and Joseph Alexander Smith Acklen. Adelicia was a rich, plantation and slave owner from Nashville and Alexander was a rich attorney from Alabama. Their Belmont estate consisted of: a large, main house on top of a hill; another large guest house with an art gallery and a bowling alley; lavish gardens; conservatories with tropical fruit and flowers; an aviary; a lake; and a zoo that housed bears, monkeys, alligators, peacocks, and a white owl. Again, they were very rich. Today, the Belmont Mansion is a well-preserved museum, filled with Tennessee history.

The Hermitage:

The Hermitage is a plantation and museum 10 miles east of downtown Nashville. The house is famous for being owned by President Andrew Jackson between 1804 and 1845. Jackson purchased the cotton farmland and its two-story log blockhouse from Robert Hays in 1804. Jackson later built a new main house and used the old log blockhouse to house his 9 slaves. By 1820 Jackson’s Hermitage mansion was a two-story, eight-room, Federal-style brick building and his slave count had grown to 44 as his farmland expanded to 1,000 acres. Jackson spent little time at the mansion, as he was off conducting General and President’s duties for most of his career. In 1834 a chimney fire damaged most of the building. The current Hermitage plantation building is a large, Greek Revival reconstruction, built in 1835. In 1889 the Hermitage opened as a public museum dedicated to Andrew Jackson’s life and Southern history in general.

Ryman Auditorium:

The Ryman Auditorium is a 2,362 live performance theater at 116 5th Avenue North, in Nashville. Thomas Ryman, a Nashville businessman, built it in 1892. After Ryman’s death in 1904, it was renamed Ryman Auditorium in his honor. Between 1943 and 1974 the venue was home to the Grand Ole Opry, a country music stage show and performance group. Until the Opry built a larger venue near the Opryland USA theme park, the Ryman Auditorium was known as the Grand Ole Opry House. As of 2012, the auditorium is still in use, but its stage is undergoing renovations. The historic Ryman Auditorium was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

RCA Studio B:

RCA Studio B is a famous recording studio at Nashville’s RCA Studios. The studio became famous in the 1960s when several notable country music legends recorded songs inside it. Engineer Bill Porter is credited with making music recorded here sound better than music recorded at most other recording studios. He created fiberglass acoustic ceiling panels known as “Porter Pyramids” and marked areas on the floor where certain instruments created the most even frequency response. The studio was vital to promoting the new style of country music, Nashville Sound, and reviving country music’s popularity. Several notable artists recorded music at RCA Studios including: Chet Atkins, The Browns, Jerry Byrd, Skeeter Davis, Connie Francis, Don Gibson, Buddy Harman, Waylon Jennings, Charlie McCoy, Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Connie Smith, Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, and Dottie West. RCA Studio B became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
