The Peabody, an historic hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.
The original Peabody was built by Colonel Robert C. Brinkley in 1869. Just prior to its opening, Brinkley received news of the death of his good friend, philanthropist George Peabody. As a sign of respect for Peabody, who endowed George Peabody College in Nashville and contributed much to the disadvantaged South, the new hotel was named The Peabody.

Can't you just hear the blues being belted out on this antique gem? I have photos of the famous.
This exquisite table was one of many pieces of furniture that caught my eye. The woodwork and double size wooden doors were also astounding. I felt like I was in a castle. I could almost hear the rustle of hooped skirts and the voices of the gentleman suitors asking their belles to dance.
This wall-size tapestry was gorgeous. Can you imagine the tales this could tell?
Won't you come back for more photos? I have pictures of items in the mini museum, as well as the holiday festivities, and of course details about the duck walk and how it came to be and the story behind the fountain.
