History: Stonewall Place Historic District is a four-block segment of Stonewall Street which Robert Brinkley Snowden and John Bayard Snowden helped to develop. It has one of the oldest neighborhood associations in Memphis and is one of the city’s earliest historic conservation districts. The Memphis Shade Tree Company planted many of the trees that still line the street today. It is highly regrettable that twelve residences in the district were demolished to provide a corridor for Interstate 40 that was never built.
