Address: 648 Poplar Avenue, Memphis
Architectural Style: Federal, Ornate Italian, Victorian, Adam
Original Function/Purpose: Residential
History: This house serves as a highly significant example of the synthesis of several architectural styles that have mostly disappeared from Memphis architecture at large. Built according to the Adam, Federal, and Italianate styles, the Bradford-Maydwell house documents the drastic shift of architectural preference over the course of Memphis’s history. It is the only surviving example of a Federal residence in Memphis, and is undergoing renovation by its current owner, a member of the Board of Directors of Victorian Village.
