Memorandum of Agreement regarding Cobblestones

On this date, the Army Corps of Engineers executed a Memorandum of Agreement with the City of Memphis and Tennessee's State Historic Preservation Organization (SHPO), requiring the City to perform a cultural resource study and preservation plan for the cobblestones area, prior to doing any further excavation and development work in the area. (In September 1994, the Corps of Engineers had stopped the City, after discovering that the city engineers had begun removing the cobblestones in the vicinity of the proposed Tom Lee memorial at the foot of Beale.) The copy of the Memorandum can be obtained below.
