What is going to happen to the French Quarter?
Come to Memphis Heritage Wednesday, February 1st at 6pm to find out!

The northeast corner of the Cooper-Madison intersection, site of the abandoned French Quarter Inn, is under contract to be purchased by a different ownership group than those that had recently planned to develop an upscale five star hotel.

Save Overton Square and the Midtown Action Coalition have asked for a public meeting to meet the new owners and hear their plans for the site. The new prospective buyers have agreed to meet.

Memphis Heritage has agreed to host this public meeting at their offices at Howard Hall, 2282 Madison Ave at Edgewood. Once again, the meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 1st at 6:00 pm.

All those interested in the future of Overton Square and their Midtown neighborhoods are urged to attend.
