Memphis' Idlewild Historic District

Recommended Posts

I've posted these pics on some forum, just not sure if on here. Anyway, here's a look-see at the Idlewild historic district in midtown Memphis. It's primarily shotguns and wooden victorians, and so on. Bears a little architectural resemblance to New Orleans.

I love that part of town, its so diverse. I can't wait until the Memphis City Schools open enrollment starts so that I can get my son into Idlewild E.S. I think its one of the best tree lined areas of the city.

Very nice pics, and some of those houses are similar to those found in New Orleans. I really like seeing old homes like those, just something interesting and appealing about them.

Did anyone know there is an Idlewild community in West Tennessee. Its near Bradford in Gibson County. I pass the road sign indicating where to turn off on the way to Jackson on US 45E. I wonder what Idlewild means. You know its relevance sleepy?

I know there's a town in Scotland named Idlewild. There's an Idlewild Presbyterian Church in Memphis, so that makes sense. I guess it is a Gaelic word.
