I live behind the Raleigh Springs Mall and I'm all for what the City of Memphis will be investing into our community. Here is a link to the YouTube video of the Raleigh Community Council meeting held 5-07-15. http://youtu.be/uUrPJElRDEs
The Volunteers in the Preservation of the Raleigh Cemetery would like to invite you to attend the 2nd "Walk-Thru" Tour of it's residences. Mr. Dale Schaefer will conduct the "Elmwood Cemetery like tour" of the grounds. There are Shelby's buried here, believed to be relatives of Isaac Shelby, who our county was named for. The second mayor of Memphis, Isaac Rawlings, is buried here, as are yellow fever victims and probable former slaves. Other prominent names on headstones include Coleman, Laughlin,Bolton, Elmore, King, Burrow, Beal, and Taylor. Wilson Sanderlin, who once owned much of the land that became Raleigh, is buried here.

Another reminder to mark your calendars for the Spring Old Raleigh Cemetery "Walk-Thru" to be held Saturday afternoon, April 5 at 1:30 at the ORC. If you've never been out here, or would like to see the REMARKABLE changes that have taken place since last year, come on out. It's still a diamond in the rough, so walking can be difficult. Wear long pants and sturdy walking shoes. Hope to see you there. NOTE: Rain will postpone the event until the following Saturday.
I did a YouTube video of the presentation from Architect Tom Marshall and Robert Lipscomb of what the New Raleigh Springs Mall area COULD BE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPznLQ-Z81…
This was made during the Raleigh Community Council, Inc. 501(c)(3) monthly meeting.
