Tennessee State Architectural Trench Grilles
Tennessee is a landlocked state in the U.S. South. Its capital, centrally located Nashville, is the heart of the country-music scene, with the long-running Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a legendary stretch of honky-tonks and dance halls. Memphis, in the far southwest, is the home of Elvis Presley’s Graceland, rock-and-roll pioneering Sun Studio and the blues clubs of Beale Street.
State Capital: Nashville.
Tennessee State is situated in the upper South region of eastern United States and joined the union in 1796 as the 16th state.
Tennessee state has unique geographical features. Its extreme breadth of 432 miles extends from the Appalachian Mountains which borders North Carolina in the east to the Mississippi River which borders Arkansas and Missouri in the west. The narrow width of some 112 miles of Tennessee separates its north neighbours Virginia and Kentucky from Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia to the south. Tennesse's state capital is Nashville and Memphis is Tennesse's biggest city.
With diverse geographical features, Tennesse possesses a large variety of social, cultural and economic attributes. This has led some residents to perceive Tennesse in terms of 3 big divisions - East, Middle and West Tennesse.
East Tennesse is dominated by the Great Smoky Mountains and the Cumberland Plateau (also known as Cumberland Mountains) and is home to the famous local mountain traditions. The major population hubs of East Tennesse are Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Kingsport.
Middle Tennesse features level and fertile land which is interrupted frequently by rolling hills. Overall this has traditionally been a commercial and agricultural region where Nashville remains its major urban centre.
West Tennesse on the other hand is mainly flat land with rich soil and has always had an economy based on plantation agriculture especially in cotton. Memphis is thh dominant urban centre in West Tennesse.
One can find rich Native American heritage in Tennesse from the Chickasaw and Cherokee.
