Memphis Visitor’s Center

Standing at the gateway to the Whitehaven community, the Memphis Visitor Center welcomes visitors to the Elvis’ old neighborhood. Edgy, quirky and eye-catching, the building uses common, inexpensive materials in uncommon ways to create unique architectural character within a stringent budget. It provides space for exhibits, meetings, office needs as well as a gift shop. The design was recognized as the winner of the Excellence in Masonry from the Masonry Institute of Tennessee in 2010.
