Victorian Village

A stroll through Victorian Village in Memphis, Tennessee transports you back to the United States during the nineteenth century.  Located in the eastern quadrant of downtown Memphis on Adams Street and Jefferson Street, this neighborhood features picturesque Victorian architecture and famous historical houses.  One of Memphis’s most notable Victorian architects, Edward Jones, constructed the Woodruff-Fontaine House and renovated the Harsson-Goyer-Lee House. The Massey House is the oldest in the area, dating back to 1846.  Currently, the buildings instill a historical electricity in the area, with several of the remaining structures being preserved as museums.  The Magevney House, the Mallory-Neely House and the Woodruff-Fontaine House are all open to the public for observation. While continuous efforts are being made to preserve the remaining homes in this neighborhood, some of the buildings are considered endangered and are currently closed to the public. The neighborhood is worth visiting to witness the charming and breathtaking Victorian architecture while it is still successfully maintained.
