Three and four-story Victorian mansions from the mid-1800 early period of Memphis are restored and offer tours. During Memphis' early period of growth wealthy citizens built grand, Victorian-style homes in what was then the outskirts of the city. The Woodruff-Fontaine House (1870) has been fully restored and is open for tours along as being a spectacular setting for weddings and various events. The Mallory-Neely House (1852), which is being restored and will reopen sometime in the near future, is the only historic property in Memphis to retain most of its original furnishings. Another unique house is the Mollie Fontaine House (1886), which is an incredible restaurant / piano bar / late night club. The Victorian Village neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
