Special Event for Patrons and Upper-Level Members

Mary Helen and Ronald McCoy will welcome upper-level members for wine and hors d'ouvres and a tour to their lovingly restored home built in the 1860s. A walkway of old brick leads to a pair of French doors with iron grillwork which open to one of the most historic and charming homes in Memphis. Built in 1860 as a carriage house for the Buntyn Plantation, this home has been altered and lovingly cared for by a succession of owners and is now owned by interior designer Mary Helen and Ronald McCoy who moved from Birmingham in late 2013.
