Peabody Park Pavilion Gets a Facelift



Last month, the Flyer ran a story about Preservation Memphis' first fixer-upper project — restoring the Peabody Park pavilion.

The nonprofit landmark restoration group was raising money to begin work on stabilizing and painting the pavilion, which had fallen into disrepair and was closed off by the city earlier this year. The funding goals have been met, and construction is nearly finished on the project. Preservation Memphis focuses on Memphis landmarks that can be restored for $15,000 or less.

Preservation Memphis co-founder Kenny Jabbour sent over this picture to show how far the pavilion has come. He said the pavilion work should be complete next week after copper fenial is added to the roof.
