tbt: parthenon, usa

Everyone has heard of the Parthenon in Greece. But did you know that we have our very own Parthenon here in America? I certainly did not, until we visited our family in Tennessee this past Christmas. This full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens houses an exhibit of the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Expo and a 42-foot-tall (super creepy) statue of Athena.
