Welcome to Our Neighborhood
Central Gardens is an historic neighborhood consistently voted Best Neighborhood in Memphis, Tennessee by Memphians for Memphis Magazine’s annual poll.
We have residents who have lived here for fifty or more years, yet we continue to attract new residents who find it an ideal place to live and play.
This, in part, is due to the dedicated homeowners and preservationists who have a fascination for classic homes with fine craftsmanship and are proud to live on our tree-lined streets which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
