The Barn on the side of the road

Another victim of a subdivision. Next time you see a barn, enjoy the view while it's there...
(Collierville-Arlington Road)

The Old Stagecoach Rest Stop

This little log cabin was built back in 1851. I am sure it provided welcome rest to many weary and tired travelers. Thanks to restoration work it is alive and well in the Town Square.

The old lonely house

This lonely old house is no longer there either. I miss it.
(Poplar Avenue, just East of Bailey Station Rd.)

I used to drive by these farm buildings every day on my way to work. They are no longer there. It is now a subdivision.
(Poplar Ave, East of Bailey Station Road)

The Old Train Depot

No longer operates as a train station, but it has been very well preserved in other roles. It remains one of the most recognizable landmaks in Collierville. It is located in the South side of the Historic Town Square.

The Water Tower

Yes, it used to be painted white. It is now painted green.
(Town Square)

The White Church

It is now an Antiques shop and a (great) restaurant.
