 Memphis Heritage Mission: 

“OUR MISSION…Our mission is to educate and coordinate individuals and groups to save, improve, reuse, and maintain architecturally and historically significant buildings, neighborhoods, parks, and cultural artifacts of Shelby County, Tennessee”

Memphis Heritage, Inc. was founded in 1975 as a non-profit educational and charitable organization.  From our efforts to save the Hill mansion on Union Avenue to our efforts today encompassing the entire city, Memphis Heritage keeps working to preserve our area’s rich history.  As Memphis Heritage celebrates its 37 year anniversary, it continues to be the voice for the preservation of the Memphis area’s architectural heritage. 



Sunday, November 10

Cleveland Street (from Overton Park to Galloway)

Cleveland Street will be transformed into a vibrant urban marketplace with over 50 merchants. Local businesses, residents, and community organizations will temporarily redesign and activate the area of Cleveland from Overton Park to Galloway. This event is spurred by success of A New Face for an Old Broad, and Cleveland Street is the first site for MEMFIX Initiative. This event will show the importance for economic vitality and neighborhood redevelopment.
