The vision of early developers of Memphis is seen in this classic example of a turn-of-the-century neighborhood of American foursquares and bungalows. A combination of two subdivisions, South Annesdale (1906) & Snowden Homestead (1910), the area was developed by brothers Brinkley & J.B. Snowden on land surrounding the family home, Annesdale (1855).
