The Harsson-Goyer-Lee House In Memphis, Tennessee

    Newer Older

    This is a photograph that I took of The Harsson-Goyer-Lee House in the city of Memphis, Tennessee. This home was built in the late 1860's by riverboat owner, James Lee. The home was later bought by Charles Goyer, one of the founders of Union Planters Bank, who expanded it in 1871.

    This was one of several Victorian mansions that were built by the elite citizens of Memphis on what was then the outskirts of the city (now 690 Adams Street). This old house is a representative of a long gone era in the South.
