This was a nice tour to do from the coolness of our air conditioned van. We printed out a map ahead of time that showed where all the Victorian buildings were in the area and... read more

The houses were gorgeous, interesting to visit, but I was expecting more, there are only a very few houses remaining, if you pass by on your way somewhere else it is fine, not worth if you just go for that!

The houses are gorgeous and the architecture is incredible. This is a part of Memphis, TN that was known as "Millionaire's Row". The entire district is undergoing renovations & will be incredible once it's all complete. There's rich history in these homes & they are located in a park like atmosphere. The hours to actually tour the homes are limited,... More

Very beautiful homes in one of the few Victorian areas still existing in Memphis. Much of the area has either been restored or is in the process of being restored.

These are beautiful homes, although I was expecting more than just a few. At least on or two of the homes are ones that can be toured so go during a time they are open.

I always seek out historic architectural districts when traveling. This district rivals, or at least is competitive of other Southern cities. I was so wowed by the peaceful neighborhood. What really made me gawk was the absolutely gorgeous architecture. Many of the homes are museums, but some are still family owned.

If you love Victorian architecture like I do, do not fail to see the Victorian Village if you are in Memphis. There are several examples of gorgeous, intricate Victorian style that doesn't exist anymore. I was with some women from Texas who said they liked seeing the Victorian homes more than they liked seeing Graceland!

This was a nice tour to do from the coolness of our air conditioned van. We printed out a map ahead of time that showed where all the Victorian buildings were in the area and drove by and took pictures of each one. This is a very interesting tour if you are into history and/or architecture. Even my daughter was... More

Touring the Mallory-Neely House and the Fontaine House takes one on a trip back in time. Each home offers very different settings. The former has original furnishings, some of which (TV) are modern. The latter has been beautifully furnished with period pieces. The Fontaine House periodically has mannequins which are dressed in period clothing reflecting events such as Christmas or... More

The houses are nice, and it looks like several of them are undergoing renovations, so perhaps more of them will be open to the public in the future! They are beautiful, but hours are limited.

The houses were gorgeous. There is one in particular where there are little houses probably the size of a small room and those little houses were a little girl's playhouses. Boy, was she spoiled!
