HISTORICAL TOUR & HAPPY HOUR OF DOWNTOWN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

A historical tour of Downtown Presbyterian Church with Jim Hoobler (former director of the Tennessee Historical Society, Curator of the Tennessee State Capitol, and Senior Curator of Art & Architecture of the Tennessee State Museum).
If you’ve never peeked inside this building, it is the finest extant example of Egyptian Revival architecture in the world, and an absolutely extraordinary architectural gem in the heart of downtown!
We’ll follow the tour with a walk down Broadway & happy hour at Acme Feed and Seed.
