I want to thank Scott Blake and Victorian Village, Inc. for including Memphis City Beautiful in the cleaning and preparation of this magnificent property for sale and eventual reuse.
As a girl, my mother - Martha Turley Grivich went to art school there, and dearly loved her expeiences. About 20 years ago, my late husband Jack Tucker, FAIA, had a group that had been prepared to renovate and move in.
Memphis City Beautiful loans tools to hundreds of organizations every year for their clean up and beautification projects. This one was very special because Victorian Village is our own neighborhood.
This is wonderful!
