The Bell Tower learn more

The Bell Tower is one of the only original downtown Nashville structures that survived World War II. Although it has been updated with dramatic chandeliers and furnishings, it has held onto its 1874 character with original floors and tall, arched windows that allow natural light to pour in.

The acoustics in this former church are ideal for live music.
