2017 - 703 Beale St.

This Friday we flash back more than 100 years to construction of the building at 703 Beale St. in what is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the Southern Railway Industrial Historic District. 703 Beale houses #MLGW’s Central Shops. It was built between 1891 and 1901 in the Neoclassical style and was home to Memphis Light and Power Company until 1939 when Memphis Light, Gas and Water was formed. Through the decades thousands of MLGW employees have worked and trained in the building. #ServingYouIsWhatWeDo
