The Town Square is the heart of Collierville community. Situated where roads converged, churches and meetinghouses sat, and commerce flourished, the Square today serves as a window to our social, cultural and economic past.
By preserving and enhancing the Town Square, we add to our quality of life, making for a more livable community.
But historic preservation involves much more than simply saving and restoring old buildings and sites of historic importance; there are economic, cultural, environmental, and educational benefits of historic preservation, all of which are inextricably connected to one another and to the living memory of our community.
Join Laura Todd, Executive Director of Main Street Collierville and Ashley Carver, Director of the Morton Museum of Collierville History as they explain how historic preservation serves as a powerful economic engine, creating jobs, increasing our tax base, and generating tourism dollars.
Learn about the many other benefits that make historic preservation an important investment in our present and future.
