Where was this taken? Guess!

Can you figure out where this was taken (on April 6, 1911)?


This photograph was taken at the corner of Main St. and Water St. at the laying of the marble cornerstone for the Ben-Hur Building. The ceremony was attended by a large group of delegates of the fraternal organization, gathered from across the country. The original Supreme Tribe of Ben-Hur building can be seen on the opposite corner near the middle of the photograph. This photograph of the event was discovered placed behind a framed artwork in Tennessee by Delores Fleming. This photograph was originally the property of Doris Carney, whose husband's grandfather, Wright B. Carney, can be seen holding the Tennessee sign in the right third of the photograph.
