SOUL OF MUSIC CITY NIGHT TOUR: July 1st, July 2nd & July 3rd
Due to scheduled road closures associated with Nashville’s 4th of July festivities, the Soul of Music City Night Tours on July 1st, July 2nd & July 3rd will depart from 138 5th Ave N. (at the Old Town Trolley Depot located on the corner of 5th Ave N. & Commerce St.) Due to these road closures, the night tour on these nights will not be able to drive down lower Broadway or walk the Pedestrian Bridge.
Mary of the Seven Sorrows Catholic Church is the oldest standing house of worship in the Protestant Vatican of the South. Built in 1837, it was considered an architectural wonder because the structure did not require internal columns. Like other Nashville churches, it was a hospital for wounded soldiers on both sides during the war. One of the unique downtown Nashville churches, it was the seat of the Archdiocese of Nashville for over 70 years. Mary of the Seven Sorrows Catholic Church features intricate stained glass windows, Italian marble altars and rare paintings like Botticelli’s “Madonna of the Fruit.”
