War Memorial Building Complex: A History

Description

After much political lobbying, the Tennessee legislature approved funding for a memorial which began construction in 1923. In 1925, the War Memorial Building was dedicated in response to this public desire. The War Memorial Building since then has constantly adapted to city of Nashville’s needs. As its function and purpose shifted from bureaucratic and multipurpose, to be a space for political and social activism and then to a historical venue. The building remains a prime example of how a structure must adapt to modern society in order to stay relevant and useful to a city.
