Jimmy Ogle, well known as a local historian and an “urban explorer,” will present the second in a series of talks about the history of the neighborhoods surrounding the University of Memphis during a presentation Wednesday, April 20, at noon in the Beale Room of the University Center. 

Ogle’s lecture will feature information and stories that were provided to him by residents of the six neighborhoods districts following his first neighborhood history presentation last fall. Schools, parks, churches, cemeteries, longstanding businesses, and public art will be the highlights of this segment of the continuing series.

His talk is free and open to the public.  Convenient paid parking is available in the Zach Curlin parking garage, which is adjacent to the University Center.

The neighborhood history series is sponsored by the U of M’s University Libraries with support from the Friends of the University Libraries and in partnership with the Highland Area Renewal Corporation, Inc.
