|The Ryman Auditorium is a National Historic Landmark and the famous former home of the Grand Ole Opry (1943-1974). It was built in 1892 by Captain Ryman as a tabernacle for his spiritual mentor Reverend Samuel P. Jones. The Ryman is currently used as a performance venue - Nashville's premier performance hall.
The restoration of the Ryman which began in 1993, maintains the historical appearance while meeting today's high entertainment standards. Acoustics from the stage are said to be second only to the Mormon Tabernacle. The garland stenciled along the Confederate Gallery, recreates the original decorative detail from 1897.
