Mallory-Neely House guided tour
Our Historic Houses are temporarily closed for tours.
(Grades K – 12)
Step inside a Victorian time capsule to discover what life was like for wealthy Memphians of the 19th century. Located in the Victorian Village National Register Historic District, this Italianate mansion was built circa 1852 and lavishly redecorated in the 1890s by cotton factor James Neely for his wife and five children. Follow their life stories and learn how they met their needs for food, clothing, shelter and transportation. Compare their social customs to those we follow today. See and handle everyday household items of the era and consider how historic personal, domestic and technological objects evolved to modern times.
