Sadly, the historic Clayborn Temple continues to deteriorate, waiting for a buyer to emerge. Will it be saved from the wrecking ball?

Clayborn Temple, Memphis, TN

Inactive and boarded for years, the Historic Clayborn Temple  (originally Second Presbyterian Church) is still magnificent at  48o Hernando, at Linden.  It was here that Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “I Have Been the the Mountaintop” sermon.

The building seems to be threatened by development to the south; FedEx Forum is just across Linden to the north;  the Beale Street Entertainment district is only a block away.

Current Owner:
