Centennial Hall | Tennessee Vacation

Centennial Hall

1711 New Hwy 96W
Franklin, TN 37064

Originally the Knights of Pythias Pavilion, this glass domed and wooden structure was constructed by the fraternal organization for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition in 1897, for which NashvilleÂ’s famous Parthenon was also constructed (now NashvilleÂ’s Centennial Park). Also known as Carlisle House, the building was actually dismantled and moved from the exhibition site (now NashvilleÂ’s Centennial Park) in 1900 by Joseph Parks, supposedly to impress a woman he was courting. Perched on its rocky knoll, this National Historic Register property has witnessed over a century of change, and is still a private residence today.
