Many people come to the Memphis area looking for a big city with bustling, vibrant culture. And Memphis fits those descriptions—the city boasts something for everyone and is well loved by locals and travelers both. But for residents, tourists, and movie-makers alike, the town of Collierville, a suburb just half an hour away from the action of Memphis, has a quieter charm that can’t be matched.
This historical town has been flourishing since 1850, when it was first incorporated into Shelby County. Since then, the city has expanded and developed, drawing new residents to the area because of the great schools and welcoming atmosphere. But it’s never lost the historical background that makes it unique—in fact, even as the city moves into the future, it works to educate residents on the town’s heritage and to preserve the special features of Collierville.
Those features are well-loved by residents and tourists. They range from the charming Town Square and antebellum architecture on Main Street to museums like the Morton Museum of Collierville History, which is devoted to providing educational experiences to people of all ages. And the efforts to preserve and teach the town’s past have so far been successful—even landing Collierville national recognition.
In 2014, the town was named one of the country’s “Preserve America Communities”. This initiative encourages communities to preserve their heritage. In the same year, Parade magazine named Collierville’s Main Street the best in America, and brought national recognition to the town’s boutiques, eateries, and landmarks—like the old train depot. And Hallmark’s 2019 film Wedding at Graceland filmed some scenes in Collierville, taking the town’s picturesque views to screens around the country.
But while Collierville is well known for its Town Square and Main Street, there’s more to this community’s prized heritage than first meets the eye. While Collierville might be nationally known for these manmade features, the natural environment is also well-loved and part of the town’s past. Herb Parsons Lake, WC Johnson Park, Menagerie Farm, and the land surrounding the Wolf River Watershed are well-loved parts of the town that residents and officials have made it a point to preserve for future generations to enjoy.
The town’s ordinances, and plans for future development, make it a point to regulate which land can be developed. The beloved Greenbelt Trails/Arboretum is marked for preservation as a green corridor. Other plans for the future determine acceptable building styles to maintain the town’s appearance, and set rules about maintenance to keep the town clean.
Something else that lends Collierville that air of historic, well-preserved charm? The neat lawns and gardens that can be seen outside homes in the area. Keeping yards neat and trimmed is part of what helps to make Collierville such a great place to live—the safe, clean, pleasant neighborhoods are fostered through community efforts.
