The city of Memphis, Tennessee sits on the banks of the grand Mississippi River on the western side of the state. It lies on a natural bluff, and the area was first settled by Native Americans for its prime location. The Chickasaw Native Americans later called the area home, and it wasn’t until the 16th century that French settlers made their way to the area. The city of Memphis was founded in 1819, and the original Peabody Hotel wasn’t far behind in 1869. Known potentially as the most historic hotel in Tennessee, this Memphis gem is famous for the “Peabody Ducks” and its membership within the Historic Hotels of America.

You can find out more about the Peabody Hotel either on its official website or Facebook page. The hotel is a true gem on the western side of the state, and it remains one of the most historic hotels in Tennessee and Memphis. Have you been? Make sure you leave your own experiences in the comments!
