History: The Mosby-Bennett House is a representation of architecture prominent in rural areas surrounding Memphis in the mid- and late-1800s. The house interior also denotes its significance as the headquarters of a large plantation. The house boasts at least one porch at each elevation. It was reportedly visited by General Ulysses S. Grant as he made his way to the battle of Shiloh. The house now serves as an office for the law firm of Bailey, Clarke & Benfield and has been sensitively restored and updated.
