Walk & Learn:

I've been tipped off a few times about historian Jimmy Ogle's beloved walking tours, and this month provides the perfect opportunity for me (and you!) to give them a try. The Memphis chapter of the American Institute of Architects has declared September their seventh annual Architecture Month, and in addition to showing films and hosting lectures and events, they've partnered with Ogle to offer a weekly tour of different areas of downtown.

They kicked off last Tuesday with a walk around Court Square, and today's will take you through the historic South Main district. The tours continue each Tuesday this month, assembling at 11:45 at the designated meeting place.

As with Ogle's usual tours, these Tuesday walks are free as well as educational. So put your lunch break to good use - get out there and enjoy this beautiful weather we're having.

The rest of the schedule:
September 14
Historic South Main (meet at corner of Linden & South Main)
September 21
Union Avenue Manhole Cover & History Tour (meet at corner of Front & Union)
September 28
Front Street - Cotton Row (meet at corner of Front & Union)
