 Walking Tour of the University of Memphis West Neighborhood

Every once in a while I get to lead a walking tour of an area of Memphis that is not Downtown nor on the Riverfront. On September 10, I was asked by Dr. Lauren Burrow of the University of Memphis Early Childhood program to give a tour of the UM west neighborhood for her students. We met at the Normal Deport historical marker by the Norfolk Southern RR tracks, and walk west down Walker to the Highland Strip, north past St. Luke's United Methodist Church to Midland, and east back to the center of the campus. There were many sites to see and many stories to tell along the way. This nice photo collage of some of her favorite sites was submitted by Dr. Burrow - thank you!

Bridge Walk Photos from Marc Schwartz!

If you really want to see what some else sees on the BRIDGE WALK, then look at these wonderful photos submitted by a young photographer with a marvelous eye for "seeing" other things that some of do not "see". Marc has come on quite a few tours due to his enjoyment for Memphis History and is now sharing some of his photos with us through this web site. Thank you, Marc.

So, the next (and last of 2013) BRIDGE WALK is Sunday, November 10 at 2:00 p.m. Meet us under the beautiful Magnolia tree in Crump Park. Crump Park may be reached by driving west on Crump towards the bridges or north on I-55. The last exit in Tennessee before you cross the Mississippi River is Exit 12C (Metal Museum Drive). Attendants will be in the drive and parking lot to direct you to secure parking. Bring a camera!

And, while you are in the French Fort neighborhood, visit the National Ornamental Metal Museum and Chickasaw Heritage park, just south of Crump Park.
