Memphis, Tennessee7 contributions
This is not a very safe part of town. Advise avoiding. High crime area. There are much safer places in Memphis to visit. ✌🏼

This area might be looks like a bit abandon but it's getting better now. The house of Memphis Slim that years ago was half collapsed it is now "Memphis Slim Collaboratory", a place for future soulsville musicians. STAX, the american soul music museum with its music academy and record shop is a place should be visited if you like Memphis and the music. The Elmwood cemetary is a worth visit, too. There is a lot of small churches on both sides of Mississippi boulevard. There is a lot soul food restaurants and don't forget to stop at Sam's food Market

Soulsville is a neighborhood in Memphis where the once famous Stax records used to stand on McLemore Avenue and now exists as a museum. The name "Soulsville" is similar to Motown records in Detroit Michigan being known as "Hitsville" for the many hit records produced during its Hey day. Now you can see where artists like Otis Redding, the Staples Singers and Isaac Hayes recorded hit records for Stax in Memphis. The old Soul Train light up dance floor is here. Really cool. Isaac Hayes blue Cadillac is another artifact in the museum. A fun and interesting place to visit.
