City Market

City Market with a background of the new courthouse

This building was built as the City Market in 1922, which remained there until the Farmers Market opened up where the Bicentennial Mall is Today, then it became the Ben West building functioning as city hall. Now, among other things, it is used as law enforcement offices with the old courthouse across the street and the new courthouse in the background. Of architectural significance is the Dome on top with a monopteron and the portico main entrance. Another important Nashville building with a dome are the Social-religious building of the Peabody campus. I would like this view so much more if it weren't for the traffic light.
