The Woodruff-Fontaine House was built in 1870 along “Millionaire’s Row”. The mansion, home to two prominent Mempis families, was vacant for several years. The Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities rescued the house in 1962 and restored it to its former splendor.
Preserved inside are eclectic collections of antiquities and artifacts from the 19th and turn of the 20th centuries. The mansion is appropriately dressed according to the holiday or season. Permanent collections are on display throughout the year. The Woodruff Fontaine House Museum is revered as one of Memphis’ finest wedding and event venues, complete with a new garden venue (opening this spring).
