During Memphis’ early period of growth in the mid-19th century, a few wealthy Memphians built grand, Victorian-style homes in what was then the outskirts of the city.

On September 10, 1864 Forrest staged a nighttime raid, hoping to free Confederate prisoners and capture two Union Generals, Washburne and Hurlburt, who were in command there. Forrest led about 1,500 men against a force of 6,000 Union soldiers. His forces arrived on Beale Street, and then split up.

Established in 1852, historic Elmwood is the final resting place of many early Memphians.

Ladie’s Davies Plantation Tour & Tea
Friday, 9am-11am. 35.00/person
Davies Plantation began in 1821 as a 640-acre land grant and grew to over 2,000 acres at its peak (still fairly small by pre-Civil War standards). The Davies family owned and operated this property for over a hundred years beginning in 1851. African Americans also lived here – as slaves prior to the Civil War and as tenant farmers, sharecroppers, laborers, and domestics after the War. Cotton was the main crop grown here. Livestock, including horses, mules, and pigs, was also raised. Additionally, workers and landowners grew a variety of crops for their own consumption and as feed for the livestock.
