Union Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church, Memphis, TN

April 10, 2017

Architects John Gaisford and Hubert McGee are each associated with the design of Union Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church in 1914. McGee used it in his professional advertisement for many years following construction. The building was demolished in 2011 to make way for a CVS Pharmacy.

Sanborn maps aren’t always conclusive about the connection between auditorium and Sunday school.

  1. I was in Union Avenue UMC several times. The interior had been significantly altered in post WWII era and there was no connection between auditorium and Sunday School. The pipe organ was on the common wall between the two sections, though it was a modern intrusion and it is possible its position had been part of a wholesale redesign.

  2. Thanks for that insight. I have a former college roommate in Memphis and though to ask him to stop in but we haven’t been in touch for so long…
