Ensworth third grade students are learning all about Tennessee history and what better way to get visuals then visiting your state capitol. The third grade classes went on a walking tour Wednesday through downtown and to the state capitol. The tour, led by guide Marilyn Switzer, started at the Downtown First Presbyterian Church and made its
way down 6th Avenue. The students were told to find 3 things during the walk, The Hermitage Hotel which is celebrating it’s 100 year anniversary, a puzzle mural of art work located in Church St. Park and McKendree United Methodist Church which president James K. Polk attended.
Monuments on the Capitol grounds include statues of the three Tennessee residents who served as Presidents of the United States, Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson and Jame K. Polk. Other monuments on the grounds include the Sgt. Alivin C. York Memorial, the Tennessee Holocaust Commission Memorial, Sam Davis Memorial and the Sen. Edward Ward Carmack Memorial where the students started their tour.
