Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park
Located in the shadow of the Capitol in downtown Nashville, Bicentennial Capitol Mall gives visitors a taste of Tennessee’s history, natural wonders and serves as a lasting monument to Tennessee’s Bicentennial Celebration, which was June 1, 1996.
Visitors to the 19-acre park can experience many facets of Tennessee’s history including a 200-foot granite map of the state, a World War II Memorial, a 95-Bell Carillon, a Pathway of History and the Rivers of Tennessee Fountains.
A variety of events are offered throughout the year. An annual highlight is Tennessee’s History Festival. Held in the fall, this free event is a popular educational field trip for area schools. During the festival historical interpreters provide hands-on demonstrations of period trades and activities.
