About The James Lee House
The home at 690 Adams Avenue stands as one of the city’s most important residences and is a vibrant example of Memphis’ early grandeur and opulence.
Over the centuries, the families who have called this house home were deeply engaged in the development of every aspect of community life—from commerce and banking to benevolence and the arts. It is hard to find another place in Memphis that so powerfully embodies all these forces for good!
The preservation of The James Lee House as a bed and breakfast affords you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a bygone era while enjoying the ultimate in luxury and comfort. We invite you to make our home your destination for exclusive private dinners, tea parties, dessert receptions, rehearsal dinners and more!
