The Galloway Mansion
Overton Park Avenue . Built 1910 . The Galloway is considered to be one of the best examples of early 20th century Greek Revival architecture in Memphis. Four massive limestone Ionic columns support a two-story front portico. Much of the interior was imported from Europe, including a marble fireplace with an elaborately carved French walnut mantle in the drawing room featuring life-sized figures. It sits on 1.15 acres of well-manicured grounds.
