Several years ago, I got the book Tennessee Taproots which is a 40 year old book about all of the county courthouses in Tennessee. Looking at the photo of this in the book, the 2 big trees in this picture were considerably shorter. I've had experiences shared with others that it's impossible to get a good view of the building unless you don't get the whole building or you bring a chainsaw.
The obelisk in the foreground was placed by the state of Tennessee marking every state capitol before Nashville.
