Frayser Bauhaus

Built in 1948 by Maxwell McCall Millstead, the “Frayser Bauhaus” is a unique example of an International Style residential building- an especially rare find in Memphis. After serving as a doctor’s office for many years, the building was left vacant until it was purchased by Dana Gabrion of Gabrion Properties. Recently featured on High Ground News’ list of the Top 10 Most Unique Houses in Memphis, Dana is painstakingly restoring the original details of this fabulous Bauhaus-style home and adding even more Art Moderne flare. Follow Dana’s progress on Instagram @GabrionProperties and join us on July 12 to see this fabulous Frayser gem in person.

This one-of-a-kind renovator’s happy hour event is generously sponsored by Bank of Bartlett!

 

Frayser Bauhaus is a quick 15 minute drive from Downtown Memphis and most of Midtown. Parking available at Word of Life Seventh-day Adventist Church at 1215 Floyd Ave and along Floyd Ave. We’ll see you there!
