Zippin Up the Pippin

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2009 at 3:33 PM

I've been tied up at the other blog as of late, but hopefully we'll get back to business over here soon enough.

Like right now.

County Commissioner — and Libertyland advocate — Steve Mulroy met today with Memphis mayor pro tem Myron Lowery and Memphis CAO Jack Sammons about the preservation of both the Zippin Pippin and the Grand Carousel.

Though demolition will occur at the Mid-South Fairgrounds to make room for future development, neither the Carousel or the Pippin will be harmed.

In a release from Mulroy, he said Sammons said the simplest thing to do with the Pippin would be to leave it where it is and raise money to restore it to working order. The other option could be to move it elsewhere in the city.
