  • The lady who did my tour was amazing informative and extremely knowledgeable. Overwhelming emotions ran thru me but I left educated enlightened and I would suggest anyone who is the area to stop there take the tour open your eyes and your heart and have tissues on hand. If I ever go to Memphis again I will go back here. I didn't take photos out of respect. Next time I will ask if it's allowed.
  • This is a house, that at one time was on the slave underground. It's a small house, but the tour is guided. The guide did a superb job of telling that story of the house and painted a picture of the slave trade in general. Worth going to if you are interested in the slave condition and history. Cost was $12 per adult.
