East of Memphis and down Poplar Avenue lies the affluent rural and suburban community known as Germantown. Incorporated in 1841 and named Germantown due to its high concentration of German residents in the mid 1800’s, it is now home to some of the most beautiful hilly, tree-shaded, rural neighborhoods in all the Mid-South, featuring a diverse mix of mid-century architectural styles from American cottages to large Tudor. Germantown is known for its civic-mindedness, its public school systems, its wide array of churches and community groups, and as a healthy, safe and wholesome place to live. In the Shops at Saddle Creek, it also features some of the best high-end shopping in the Memphis area, is known for some of the very best groups of medical centers in all of the South, and is home to FedEx’s world headquarters. Germantown residents can also enjoy the great outdoors of Shelby Farms and the 18-hole golf course at the Germantown Country Club, and are a less than a half-hour’s drive into Downtown.
