Memphis Homes of the Rich and Famous

Posted By on Fri, Jun 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Most Memphians know that Cybill Shepherd grew up here, and more than a few know that Oscar-winning Kathy Bates is a proud graduate of White Station High School.

But not so many, we suspect, know that actress Shannen Doherty was born in Memphis -- in Whitehaven, to be more specific -- along with quite a few other celebrities.

Devin Greaney has not only tracked down the childhood homes of famous Memphians (and former Memphians), he has photographed them and compiled them on a website.

Want to see where Tim McCarver, Aretha Franklin, Henry Turley, Elvis, and even Machine Gun Kelly grew up in Memphis? Sure you do. Go to Devin's website to find out more.

And, even though he's not rich, semi-famous Flyer writer and former-editor Tim Sampson's childhood home is also included.
