Woodland Presbyterian Church, Nashville, TN. March 4, 2013.
Built in 1918, a year before the Carnegie Library, the Woodland Presbyterian church was constructed after the original First Presbyterian Church of Edgefield at 5th and Woodland Street was destroyed by fire. The congregation voted to move to the current locate at 11th and Gartland in order to be near the edge of the city — which it was, at the time!
Hattie B’s, Nashville, TN. March 7, 2013.
Nashville-style hot chicken being served at Hattie B’s. I love the expression on the woman’s face. If you haven’t given Hattie B’s a try (whether or not you’re a hot chicken fanatic), you owe yourself a visit.
Cait and I went to see Wagner at the Schermerhorn this Friday and enjoyed a quick bite at the Southern (OYSTERS!). A nice leisurely stroll through the city in the mist provided some nice photo opportunities.
Carnegie Library – East Branch, Nashville, TN. April 1, 2013.
Seen here on a recent foggy morning, the East Branch of our library system was built in 1919 as part of Andrew Carnegie’s library endeavor. These libraries were funded by rich guy philanthropist Andrew Carnegie as part of a project that eventually yielded 1689 libraries throughout the country. The other remaining Carnegie library (there were originally four) in Nashville (now the North Branch) is located in North Nashville off of Jefferson Street. Both are still in active use.
Smokestack at Rolling Mill Hill, Nashville, TN. February 22, 2013.
All that remains of the powerhouse at Rolling Mill Hill is this smokestack — the powerhouse itself having collapsed during an attempt at rehabilitation.
The Parthenon, Centennial Park, Nashville, TN. January 20, 2013.
… as seen from the scenic shores of Lake Wautaga. When I have a time machine, the first thing I’m doing is going back to the 1897 Centennial exposition, so I can see this firsthand (and also maybe denounce Edison for being a heartless, traitorous fraud).
