Erected as the central structure of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, 1897, this is the only full-scale reproduction of the fifth century B.C. Athenian temple and is exact in almost every detail to the original. The idea of reproducing the magnificent building was conceived by Major E. C. Lewis, Director General of the Exposition. The building served as a gallery of fine arts during the commemoration.
