We Wrote The Book On Memphis History
From the author of A History Lover's Guide to Memphis & Shelby County, and A Guide to Historic Downtown Memphis come these fascinating walking tours of the Bluff City.
This two-hour walking tour of Memphis explores the city's rich history at a fun and leisurely pace. Memphis has always had sometihng of a dual character or split personality: at once a gracious old Southern city of riverboats and cotton money, as well as a rowdy river town of roughnecks, gangsters and gamblers. Your guide will highlight both sides of the city’s history and some of the characters who have made Memphis one of the most unique and colorful places in the world. Along the way you’ll see:
