MHI’s Adapt-A-Door is an annual event that brings large crowds to Howard Hall every fall for the silent auction of some amazing works- all made from re-purposed doors or windows. In the past, participants have either said that they had a specific project in mind or stated that they thought the door was cool and hoped for inspiration. Such inspiration has resulted in impressive projects such as wine racks, buffets, a working electric guitar, a soapbox derby car and too many other projects to mention.

Registrants adopt their door from Memphis Heritage, turn it into something amazing and return it to Howard Hall and donate it for our big fundraiser in first Sat in November. These creative works of art have people in bid-offs and often wishing they had that “one that got away”.

Architects, designers, and artist do door projects but those with no design or art background create some of the most impressive works. Adapt-A-Door is an event where people have a blast and both entrants as well as bidders get to help raise money for Memphis’ leading historic preservation organization!
