Landmark and Legend
Memphis, TN
Here we note legends-in-their-own-time and landmarks as they transition into history


 
Persons who were legends
For a period, this web site included people who passed away as legends of this community transitioning into history. However, in mid-2014, it was decided to return the site to highlighting only real property landmarks. Below are those individuals who were noted on this site as legends in their own time who passed into history.
This section is no longer updated.
