#CORROSION2019 Guest Program Monday, March 25 Historic Tennessee Tour 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The group will take a journey back in time as they visit two of the most historic mansions in the Southeast—The Hermitage and Belle Meade Plantations. Ride in comfort to The Hermitage, the home of President Andrew Jackson. Preservationists continue to use a number of scientific techniques to preserve, restore, and repair the mansion and other buildings on this 1,050 acre cotton plantation. Historians consider this the best-preserved early U.S. presidential home, and it is ready for the group to explore just as it would have been in 1836. Next, on rolling land that in the 1800s made up an estate of more than 2,500 acres in size, you will find Belle Meade Plantation. Once located at a world-renowned thoroughbred farm, the mansion is a beautiful example of Greek Revival Antebellum architecture. Enjoy a narrated tour through the mansion by a guide in period clothing, and explore other buildings on the grounds on your own. Complete the tour and the day with a wine tasting at The Winery at Belle Meade. Price: $115 USD per person, 20 person minimum Price includes: roundtrip transportation, tour director, admission into The Hermitage and Belle Meade Plantation, and gratuity. Lunch included at the Hermitage House Smorgasbord. Tuesday, March 26 Visual Arts Tour 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The group will experience a fully narrated tour of the Nashville Arts and landmarks. First we will visit the Parthenon, which stands proudly as the centerpiece of the Centennial Park, Nashville's Premier urban park. The recreation of the 42-ft (13-m) statue of Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals. Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. Nashville is also known as the "Athens of the South." Then we will visit the First Center of the Visual Arts. This is a nonprofit art-exhibition center, with approximately 24,000 ft 2 (2,230 m 2 ) of gallery space dedicated to presenting the finest visual art from local, state, and regional artists, as well as major U. S. and international exhibitors. Price: $104 USD per person, 20 person minimum Price includes: roundtrip transportation, driver/guide, admissions, and gratuity. Lunch is on your own. Wednesday, March 27 Franklin's Civil War 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Explore historic sites of The Battle of Franklin, the five bloodiest hours of the Civil War. This quaint town of Franklin, Tennessee, harkens back to a time before the harrowing fight between the Union and Confederate armies. Hearing the unique stories of heroism at the Carter House, Carnton Plantation and Lotz House, you will soon appreciate the efforts of everyone who lived here in 1864, elite society or immigrant. Understand what it took to survive the fighting, attend to the 9,500 casualties, and reconstruct citizens' homes and some semblance of their lives before the battle. Admissions to Lotz House, Carnton Plantation, and Carter House are included. Lunch is on your own in downtown Franklin. Price: $99 USD per person, 20 person minimum Price includes: roundtrip transportation, driver/guide, admissions into the Lotz House, Carnton Plantation, and Carter House, and gratuity.
