The Pillow-McIntyre House was built in 1852 according to the Victorian Village website and other sources, though as you can see in the picture the sign out front reads 1847. Curious. It was purchased in 1873 by Mexican War and Confederate General Gideon Pillow and is in the American Greek Revival style. It was for many years the home of the Memphis Art Association’s Free School. In 1976, the Margie Vanlandingham firm bought and restored the house. Somewhere along the line it fell back into disuse, until 2004 when it was again refurbished through corporate and community donations.
Also, the process of re-opening both the Mallory-Neely House c. 1852 and the Magevney House, c. 1837 to the public after being closed for five year is being started. There will be a blog up that will follow the process of what’s happening with the houses but for now you can visit
