Peabody Celebration

In 1975, the Belz family purchased a run-down Peabody hotel and worked six years refurbishing it. To mark the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the hotel's reopening, there will be a celebration today starting at 4:45 p.m. in the Grand Lobby. In addition, J.R. "Pitt" Hyde, founder of AutoZone, will be inducted into the Duck Walk Hall of Fame.
