More About Sam Jones & The Ryman AuditoriumSam Jones is a famously charismatic evangelist from the late 1800s. From the Nashville region, Jones enthusiastically delivered his sermons throughout the 1880s and eventually led a huge revival downtown. The riverboat captain at the time, Thomas Green Ryman, was converted and inspired by Sam Jones during that downtown revival and made it his life goal to create a safe space for all denominations to join in worship under him. That dream eventually became a reality in 1892 when the Union Gospel Tabernacle first opened its doors. Upon Captain Thomas Ryman’s death, Sam Jones not only delivered the eulogy but insisted upon changing the building’s name to the Ryman Auditorium, which it remains today.
