“Townsend bought 707 Adams on Wednesday, May 11, for $725,000, according to the Shelby County Record of Deeds. The historic Pillow-McIntyre House, categorized as Greek revival, dates back to 1852, according to Memphis Heritage.

Memphis Heritage CEO Leah Fox-Greenberg said Townsend has been working closely with their team on the best ways to preserve the historic building.

It’s a situation she is familiar with when working with Townsend, who sought their group’s assistance after he bought the nearby Lowenstein Mansion at 756 Jefferson Ave. in October 2021.”
