#1 - Tennessee State Capitol

From www.tn.gov:

The Tennessee State Capitol stands today much as it did when it first opened in 1859. This graceful structure was designed by noted architect William Strickland who considered it his crowning achievement. When Strickland died suddenly during construction in 1854, he was buried in the north facade of the Capitol. The cornerstone for the building was laid on July 4, 1845, and construction finished in 1859. The grounds of the State Capitol contain statues honoring Sam Davis, Sgt. Alvin York, and Presidents Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson. The tombs of President and Mrs. James K. Polk are also located on the Capitol grounds. The first acknowledgment inside the State Capitol of the successful ratification of the 19th Amendment on August 18, 1920, was unveiled in February 1998 - Alan LeQuire's bas-relief sculpture that hangs between the House and Senate Chambers.

#3 - Tennessee State Library and Archives

Tennessee State Library and Archives 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA), established in 1854, currently operates as a unit of the Tennessee Department of State. According to the Tennessee Blue Book,[2] the Library and Archives "collects and preserves books and records of historical, documentary and reference value, and encourages and promotes library development throughout the state." This mandate can be found in Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 10, Chapters 1-8.

Although most states operate their libraries and archives as separate agencies, Tennessee is one of a handful of states whose library and archives are administered jointly

#4 - The Hermitage Hotel

The Hermitage Hotel was where both the pro- and anti-suffrage forces gathered to plot their legislative strategy. The hotel staff, particularly Finance Director/historian Tom Vickstrom, have done a wonderful job in preserving the history.

#6 - Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument at Centennial Park
TWSM at Centennial Park near the Capitol in Nashville, Tennessee

Prior to August 26, 2016, there were no monuments outside the Capitol building in Nashville that reflected women’s contributions to our state’s history. There is now a privately funded monument to the Tennessee suffragists in Centennial Park which has a historic connection to the suffrage movement. Thousands of people visit Centennial Park every year, so this story will be preserved for future generations with fabulous public art. The monument was unveiled in a temporary location in Centennial Park on August 26, 2016, which is Women’s Equality Day, and will be relocated to a permanent site later when renovations to the park are completed.

#8 - Anne Dallas Dudley Marker

Anne Dallas Dudley's maker is located in Centennial Park, 2500 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203.

Anne Dallas Dudley (Mrs. Guilford) of Nashville — One of Tennessee's most influential suffragists, she founded the Nashville Equal Suffrage League in 1911, was president of the Tennessee Equal Suffrage League in 1915, vice-president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1917, and an indispensable campaigner for the 36th ratification of the suffrage amendment in Nashville in 1920. Her beauty, charm and eloquence made her the living refutation of the "she-male" label often given to suffragists by opponents of woman suffrage.
