About Town


In this week’s About Town, Downtown’s National Civil Rights Musem broke ground on the reimagining of its Legacy Building, located across the street from the main museum. And Cooper-Young business owners worry that Liberty Park’s planned retail space could cut into their revenue. Plus, Calvary Episcopal Church’s missing organ pipes were found in North Memphis (but some are still missing).

The project is expected to take two years and will change much of the museum’s campus on Downtown’s Mulberry Street.
