A postcard view of row boating on Lake Watauga, Centennial Park. This man-made lake was built for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition, held in Nashville in 1897 to celebrate Tennessee's one-hundredth anniversary of statehood. During the celebration, gondolas were a feature with native gondoliers from Venice, Italy. There was a replica of Venice's Rialto Bridge on the lake. Lake Watauga lies at the foot of the terrace in Centennial Park which is crowned by a full-scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon. Lake Watauga was named in honor of the first settlers of Tennessee who were known as the Watauga or Cumberland settlers. Forms part of the Nashville Room Postcard Collection. 1 postcard : col. ; 3.5 x 5.5 in.
