A Letter from Mayor A. Keith McDonald
T E N N E S S E E
Celebrating 150 Years
T ~ Mayor A. Keith McDonald
hank you for taking time to read this addition of the Bartlett Insights Magazine. We have a vibrant business community and I hope you will do everything you can to support it. When you do business with the companies located in our city limits you help provide jobs and funding for our schools. I am honored and excited to celebrate Bartlett’s 150th year as a city with you — my neighbors, coworkers, friends and family. Over the course of our rich history, Bartlett has grown from a sleepy stagecoach town to a thriving farming community to an industrial business hub. Today, we are the 10th largest city in Tennessee with nearly 60,000 residents who make up our vibrant community life. Bartlett is consistently recognized by national publications as one of the country’s most desirable places to live for the safety, opportunity and affordability it provides residents and their families. Many of them enjoy the big city attractions that make Bartlett an active cultural, recreational and entertainment center. But all can appreciate the unique small-town spirit which preserves and strengthens our community. I am beyond proud of the accomplishments Bartlett has made, and the best is just beginning. Bartlett will continue to be a city of choice where good people can work, live, play and learn. A place where we can both educate our children and care for our elders from generation to generation. Together, let’s enjoy our 150th year and all the events celebrating our heritage.

The Manor House at Davies Manor Plantation the oldest residence in Shelby County, was begun in 1807 as a single-room log cabin.

arly Paths, Roads & Railroads. Centuries ago narrow trails, worn down by animals keeping their feet dry on a high ridge just above a swollen Wolf River, evolved into the walk paths used by nomadic Indians to cross the area from west to east. These primitive trails in Southwest Tennessee eventually became the foundation for roads for European explorers and American settlers. In the 19th century, the Old StageCoach Road now Stage Road (US Highway 64), linked southern Tennessee to all points east from Memphis and the Mississippi River. Stage coaches, overland mail and other travelers used this road which also became part of the Bell’s Route of The Cherokee Trail of Tears in the late 1830s. As early as 1829, settlers were moving in to the area. The first settlement was called Jessamine and future Bartlett became the geographical center of Shelby County. The Memphis & Ohio Railroad (later to become the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, then CSX) began laying tracks in 1852 and the Union Depot, which is what the community became known as, was an important stop intersecting with Stage Road. The old depot was demolished in 1940. Originally called Bond Station, Ellendale became the next railroad depot north of Bartlett. In the 20th Century, Summer Avenue, also known as TN Highway 1 or the Bristol Highway, was an important part of U.S Route 70. Before the completion of the Interstate system, this highway was known as the “Broadway of America,” linking Southwestern U.S. from the Pacific to the Atlantic in North Carolina. Right smack dab in the middle of this important highway, at the intersection of Summer and Stage Road is a place called “Four Way” and the City of Bartlett. Early Homes. Three of the oldest homes in Bartlett are listed on the National
Register of Historic Places. The Manor House at Davies Manor Plantation (listed in 1975), the oldest residence in Shelby County, was begun in 1807 as a single-room log cabin. Added onto throughout the middle of the 19th century by Joel Royster, William Davies and later Logan Davies, the plantation grew to almost 2,000 acres by the end of the century. Davies Manor survived Union occupation during the Civil War and is open today as an historic attraction portraying life in the 19th century. Cedar Hall (listed in 1994) on Broadway Road was built in 1846 by local physician Samuel Bond and later occupied by Edmund Orgill until the early 1900s. Cedar Hall, listed as the John H. McFadden House on the National Register, is nearly 7,000 square feet of Colonial Revival elegance. A private residence until 2007, Cedar Hall became a bed and breakfast in 2012 and is a popular wedding and special event venue. The Gotten House (listed in 2002) on Court Street was built in 1871 by German immigrant Nicholas Gotten. The town’s first constable, Gotten was also a blacksmith, a cotton gin owner and innovator in ginning equipment. Today the house is the Bartlett Museum and maintained by the Bartlett Historical Society. 19th Century Economy. Agriculture ruled the community in the 19th century, as soybeans, cotton and flowers prevailed. Kate Bond, daughter of early settlers William and Hallie Bond, grew fields of flowers for sale at the Memphis Curb Market and provided flower arrangements to many local hospitals. Many families grew fruits and vegetables, including watermelons and strawberries for sale to markets, restaurants and hotels in Memphis. Nicholas Gotten opened a cotton gin that served over 10 square miles surrounding the Bartlett area. He received a U.S. patent in 1881 for an improvement to the cotton gin feeder. Early Settlers. At the close of the 7

Revolutionary War, North Carolina’s boundaries reached to the Mississippi River (until 1796) and many veterans received land grants in this area. The three largest land grants in the area were later bought by George Doherty, William Polk and Richard Smith, who then subdivided their lands for sale to other settlers. The most recognized names in Bartlett today are from the early settlers and farmers. Cousins John Blackwell (Goodwood) and Gabriel Bartlett (Green Bottom) settled in the area in the 1840s and became large land owners and cotton farmers. Dr. Nicholas Blackwell moved to Bartlett after the Civil War and became a leading citizen, land developer and physician in the area as well as the town’s second mayor. Other early prominent citizens were Joseph Cotton, John Lilly (carriage maker), Billy Maher, James Oglesby (carpenter), H. L. Priddy (general store), James Pruden, Harvey Williams (farmer), Joseph Ward, and W. B. Wright (postmaster). Early Schools, Churches & Cemeteries. The vacated Circuit Court building was used as a school (Bartlett Courthouse School) for 32 years. Bartlett High School was built in 1917 on land donated by Willie Blackwell Miller in memory of her father, Dr. Nicholas Blackwell. Miss Dora Gholson was the first principal for more than one hundred students and seven faculty members. In 1866, Gabriel Bartlett donated land for the first Freedman school in the area, which was the first school for black students. The Shelby County Industrial & Training School (1905-1935) provided a school and work farm for boys from destitute families. Thomas Westendorf became the school’s superintendent in 1907. Horse-drawn wagonettes for students were introduced in 1908 and replaced by motorized buses in the 1920s. Bartlett Baptist Church, organized in 1849, was previously known as Prosperity Baptist Church. A Methodist congregation, Warren Chapel, was organized BARTLETT
The Gotten House, built in 1871
in 1837. Black First Baptist Church, formerly known as Bethlehem Baptist Church was formed in 1865. A Presbyterian church was built in 1866. Fullview Baptist Church was established in 1877. Pisgah Cemetery, now known as Bartlett-Ellendale Cemetery, is the final resting place for many early settlers of the area, with the earliest known burial being Sarah C. Bond in 1837. The Tollgate Cemetery was established in 1846, deriving its name from the tollgate on the Memphis-to-Somerville plank road. The Civil War & Yellow Fever. Major land battles of the Civil War missed the Bartlett area with the closest skirmish occurring in 1862 at Morning Sun, east of the area and south of the Old Stagecoach Road. Union General Lew Wallace’s headquarters were located in Union Depot (future Bartlett) to protect the railroad tracks. Nicholas Gotten served under Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest as a cavalryman and blacksmith. Members of the Blackwell family served in the New Albany Grays of the Confederacy, as did Colonel Clark Barteau. As the Yellow Fever epidemic of 1878 spread through the county, the Courthouse was used as a hospital. Incorporation. Previously known as Union Depot (an unpopular name after the Civil War) and/or Green Bottom, the town of Bartlett was incorporated in 1866 with less than one hundred citizens and named for Major Gabriel M. Bartlett, a leading area resident. On April 14, 1866, the Daily Memphis Argus wrote: “Bartlett is pleasantly and beautifully situated on the rise of the Memphis and Ohio Railroad”. Gabriel Bartlett was also elected the first Mayor of Bartlett in 1867. From 1870-1885, the Circuit Court met in Bartlett. Because an unincorporated city was forbidden from selling alcohol, Bartlett citizens voted in 1885 to dissolve the city charter and close the saloons to reduce alcohol
consumption. With the move of the Circuit Court to Memphis, the smaller city experienced a reduction in population and it was not until 1905 that Bartlett was able to regain its charter! For its first 100 years, Bartlett’s population did not rise above 600 residents. The first newspaper, the Bartlett News, was published in 1875.

20th Century – The First 50 Years. During the first fifty years of the 20th century, the business district suffered three disastrous fires, the last being in 1924. Bartlett continued as a cotton center until the boll weevil became a determined enemy along with some over farming of the land. After World War I, Bartlett became a dairy town and had as many as twenty dairies – Albright, Cedar Hill, Clifton, Crenshaw, Haefker, Klinke, Norwood, Reid and Tate were names of some of the dairy operations. Elva Talbot Bledsoe, longtime “unofficial” Bartlett historian, was the founder of the Bartlett Historical Society in 1982 and negotiated with the City of Bartlett to preserve the Gotten House, now the site of the Bartlett Museum. Civic organizations such as the Future Farmers of America, Bartlett Garden Club and the Lions Club thrived in the middle of the 20th century. Ellen DaviesRodgers became Shelby County’s first official historian and also designed the flag for Shelby County. Some leading citizens who contributed to Bartlett in this era were Robert Dye (photography), W. J. Freeman (alderman), John George (high school principal), Clarence Gowen (mayor and historian) and Oliver Albright (gin owner). BARTLETT
Did You Know? Union General Lew Wallace, whose Civil War headquarters were in Bartlett, later wrote the epic Ben-Hur. Illinois Central Railroad engineer and Bartlett resident Avery G. “Rabbit” Warner brought his train (and Engine # 382) into Front Street Station in Memphis on April 29, 1900 about two hours late. The famous railroad engineer Casey Jones replaced Warner on what became the most famous train wreck in the nation’s history on April 30th in Vaughn, Mississippi, when Jones was killed in a wreck trying to make up for the lost time. School Superintendent, Thomas Westendorf had previously gained fame by writing the song “I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen”, which was recorded by the likes of Bing Crosby, Merv Griffin, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. Clarence Saunders, founder of the first selfservice grocery store in America in 1916 (Piggly Wiggly, Memphis) and builder of what eventually became the Pink Palace Museum, died in his Bartlett home in 1953. The residential area to the north of the business section of Bartlett Station has recently been named a Historic District. And, for some reason, it seems as though no one in Union Depot or Green Bottom (or Bartlett) ever liked Davy Crockett!

B A R T L E T T history
By Sue Griffith Coleman
In 1982, a hotly contested mayoral election resulted in Bobby Flaherty (center) succeeding long-term Mayor Oscar Yates.
The 1960’s: Setting the Foundation for Growth
proved to be a watershed year for the quiet, small town of Bartlett, population approximately 500. The town had the same boundaries as it did when incorporated in 1866, but with the election of Oscar T. Yates on the “Progressive” ticket, change was on the horizon. Under Mayor Yates, the city expanded through annexation, streets were paved and Stage Road widened. The waterworks and sewage system, which had controversially been funded by state-approved bonds in 1949, was expanded and is still owned by Bartlett today. A small business district on Stage Road by the railroad tracts existed and several businesses were located at Shelby Center, or Four Way (Stage Road and Summer Avenue) including a service station and repair shop, a barber shop, the Shelby Motel & Restaurant and The Peoples Bank (today Trustmark Bank). Bartlett had the zip code 38005
until 1973 when it became a branch of the Memphis Post Office. Today Bartlett is divided by four zip codes 38133, 38134, 38135 & 38002. The current Bartlett Post Office on Elmore Park Rd. was built in 1976. In the early 1960’s there was one police officer, Lee Gaia, who patrolled the town. He had a motorcycle and was very vigilant maintaining the speed limits. In 1968, T.L. Carpenter was appointed Town Marshall and along with Sam Crenshaw, Carl Moore and Hoarse Jones who together protected the city prior to the establishment of the police department. Under the Shelby County Schools system, Bartlett High School had been a Grade 1-12 school but new elementary schools were being built. Bartlett Elementary was located next to the High School on the west and Elmore Park Elementary opened. Ellendale Elementary was built on Third Road in 1918 and added an addition in the 1960’s. In 1967 a new public library opened at 5803 Stage Road. By the end of the 1960’s, Bartlett’s population had more than doubled. 11
The 1970’s: A “Bedroom” Community Expands Exponentially
uring the 1970s Memphis was growing and new people were looking to the suburbs for new homes, good schools and lower taxes and Bartlett fit the bill. Population grew from 1,100 in 1970 to 17,170 by the end of the decade. Along with growth came construction companies that built many of the new homes. Builders of the period included Jim Reid, John R. Thompson, Dewey Price, Don Beasley, G.H. Parker and Ace Roberts.. Annexation continued to the city’s current boundary on the south and west, up to Yale Road. The north boundary followed Yale to Billy Maher and along St. Elmo. Ellendale was annexed in 1977-78. As new commercial growth moved east down Stage Road, homes were torn down to accommodate the growth. Stage Road was widened yet again. In the late 1970’s, the Board of Aldermen anticipated the growth of the business community and enacted a strict Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett sign ordinance requiring quality building CEO structures and Jeremy Clark landscaping for all Bartlett businesses. When passed, many businessmen strongly opposed the ordinance and formed the Bartlett Businessmen Association to oppose it. Differences were resolved and in 1980, this organization evolved into the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce with Terry Edward as its first president. In 1984 Suzanne Griffith was hired as Executive Vice President and the first full time employee. The police department, under the leadership of Hank Johnson, began with a small budget that grew with the city, adding officers, cars, equipment and training. The Fire Department, which up until the 1970’s remained largely a volunteer force, also expanded, adding three full time fire fighters in 1971 and in 1977 Fire Station #1 was built at 2939 Altruria Road at the corner of Stage Road. Ambulances were purchased and paramedics hired. Bartlett became the only suburb with ambulance service and today, all Bartlett firefighters and paramedics are state certified. Schools felt the growth impact as well. Shadowlawn, which had been a black school, was integrated and became a middle school. Altruia Elementary School opened on Deermont in 1977 and a new Ellendale Elementary School was built on Dawnhill Road in 1978. Churches were growing, civic clubs established, the Stagecoach Days Festival began and the Bartlett Christmas Parade stepped off in 1974 coordinated by Wanda Bowen, a real estate agent who also organized the Miss Bartlett Pageants.
The 1980’s: Commercial and Industrial Growth Accelerates
n the 1980’s Bartlett was one of the fastest growing cities in Tennessee. It had the assets needed: location, transportation, land ready to be developed, good government, growing business and industry as well as housing diversity. Commercial and retail growth changed
Stage Road and Bartlett Boulevard dramatically during this decade. New shopping centers sprang up including Town Square, Towne Center, Malco Plaza, Normandie Place, and Parkside Gallery. The variety of shopping and entertainment gave citizens the convenience of staying in Bartlett. Amidst all this growth, a citizen named Elva Bledsoe was concerned that too many of the historic places were being torn down. When the city decided to demolish a historic home on Court Street for a tennis court she went to Mayor Oscar Yates and asked if the home could be saved. The home was originally owned by Nicholas Gotten, built in 1871, and was in good condition. Ms. Bledsoe wanted to create a historical society and proposed to house it and a museum in the Gotten home. The Mayor and Board of Alderman agreed with her and gave her soon-to-be-formed historical society a 50-year lease on the house. True to her

word, Mrs. Bledsoe founded the Bartlett Historical Society in 1982 and they renovated the Gotten House to replicate how it originally looked. In 1991 the Bartlett Museum/ Gotten House was formally dedicated, and in 2002 achieved acceptance on the National Register of Historic Places, making it the third location in Bartlett with that designation, behind Davies Manor and Cedar Hall. The arts community was active also. The Bartlett Community Theater group was formed in 1980 and presented “The Sound of Music” as its first production under the leadership of Dave Leuchauer and Paula McCalla. Maria Von Trapp was invited and she accepted and came to Bartlett. The theater group was very popular and did annual performances into the 2000’s. In 1984 the City of Bartlett and the Chamber became involved in the Governor’s Three Star Community Preparedness Program designed to work with communities desiring to evaluate its ability to attract new industry. Local committees looked at all aspects of the community,
infrastructure, availability land and quality of life to determine what needed to be done. The Tennessee Department of Economic & Community Development then sent in a team acting as an industrial prospect to assess the community’s readiness. Bartlett received its first Three Star Award in 1984 and through a yearly re-evaluation process, received the Three Star designation for 13 consecutive years. In 1982, another hotly contested mayoral election resulted in Bobby Flaherty succeeding long-term Mayor Yates. The new mayor had a vision for Bartlett as a selfsustaining city with enough business and industry to help keep property taxes low. He created a new position, Director of Planning and Economic Development and hired Charles Goforth. They began looking for land and “clean” industries in keeping with the city’s concern that industrial growth should complement, not degrade, the livability of the
into this building. Several “home grown” industries also located in the Bartlett Corporate Park. Brimhall Foods Company which makes Brim’s Snack Foods began making pork rinds in 1982 in a small building in Bartlett and in 1987 moved into a new facility in the Corporate Park on A.E. Beaty Drive. Today they make a variety of chips, popcorn and cheese puffs along with pork rinds. Terry Brimhall, the president, graduated from Bartlett High School. Roger Johnson and Ronnie Randall started a company, Kele & Associates, in a garage in Bartlett making and distributing component parts for commercial heating and AC units. In 1990 they built their manufacturing/distribution plant in Bartlett Corporate Park. Other businesses locating in the park were S.A.W. Textiles, Bird Fasteners, Mini Max, and Continental Trophies. In other business notes, in 1980 the Byrd brothers, Dan, Bob, Harold and John started the Bank of Bartlett at 6281 Stage Road which has grown to eight branches serving all of Shelby County. Finally, in 1989 a beautiful new City Hall was opened at 6400 Stage Road, between the fire station and the library, featuring a large council chamber, conference room and offices.

community. In 1983 the city purchased 100 acres of land (a bean field) on Highway 64 to the east of the city and lured their first industrial prospect, Richards Medical Company, to become the first tenant in the new Bartlett Corporate Park. Today, the name of the company is Olympus. In 1986 a Japanese company, Brother Industries, was looking for a location for their first U.S. manufacturing plant for typewriters and business machines. The Bartlett Chamber and city officials made a presentation which was initially rejected. Brother Industries came back several months later and purchased 20 acres next to Richards Medical. In 1987 Brother Industries celebrated the grand opening of a 200,000 square-foot building with 200 employees. In 1988 Brother International Corporation bought land at 3131 Appling Road for a distribution center which they moved to Bartlett from New Jersey. In 1998 a 1.1 million square-foot distribution center was built on Brother Boulevard just east of Germantown Road and Brother Industries and Brother International both moved
uring the 1990’s residential, industrial and commercial growth continued, moving north and east at a fast pace. A new wastewater treatment plant was built in the North Basin. A record number of housing permits in 1992 were issued: 605. Whitten Road extended north to Fiske Road as KirbyWhitten Parkway; the city purchased 115 acres of land for a municipal complex on Appling Road; Brother Industries expanded, bringing its research and development department from Japan; the USDA Cotton Division moved into the Corporate Park; Stage Center Shopping Center opened at Stage and Kirby-Whitten, and Malco Theatres opened a 12-screen theater on Highway 64. The Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce began to focus more on retail. After completing a retail marketing survey, a video was produced to promote Bartlett businesses. A Leadership Bartlett program was started in 1990 and Youth Leadership Bartlett in 1997, both of which are still going strong; the Bartlett Education Foundation was started in 1998 to provide grants to teachers in the Bartlett schools for materials and projects not funded by the school system. The 90’s also saw an increase in the number of schools built. Kate Bond and Appling Middle Schools opened; Elmore Park Elementary became a middle school and Bartlett Elementary movcd to a new school on Billy Maher Road. Because of the influx of too many students, Bartlett High became over-crowded. In response, Shelby County School changed the school boundary lines and many children on the north side of Bartlett were reassigned to Bolton High School. 13
A New Millennium and New Challenges
y the year 2000, Bartlett’s population climbed to 40,543, more than double the 1980 population. The challenge for the city’s leadership and residents became how to keep Bartlett a growing city with a “small-town” feel. The 2000’s were about quality of life. In the late 90’s the Bartlett Performing Arts & Conference Center and the Bartlett Recreation & Fitness Center opened in the Bobby K. Flaherty Municipal Center on Appling Road. The Bartlett Senior Center opened in the newly renovated old city hall at 5727 Woodlawn. A new Bartlett Animal Shelter opened in 2003 and in 2005 the city purchased the old Bartlett Baptist Church on Stage Road and turned it into the Bartlett Station Municipal Center which provided much needed spaces to hold meetings and events. This facility also houses a police sub-station. In 2007 an addition to the Municipal Center brought the Bartlett Library into a larger, more technologically friendly facility. A new Justice Center was built on Appling Road. This modern, high-tech facility met the needs of a growing police force. In 2001 a Citizen Police Academy was formed to educate residents and give them an opportunity to observe and understand law enforcement with a “handson” approach. Under the leadership of Mayor Keith McDonald, a committee was formed to enter the’ America in Bloom’ competition and under the committee’s guidance the city “blossomed” with colorful plantings and landscaping. In 2004, St. Francis Hospital saw the potential of the area and opened a 90-bed, full-service hospital on Highway 64 at Kate Bond Road. The hospital has expanded several times and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. For many years, senior citizens were under served, with only the Ave Maria Home and Assisted Living facility available for those seniors looking for assisted living or nursing home care in the Bartlett area. In the 2000’s, Elmcroft Assisted Living, Rainbow Assisted Living, Robinwood Retirement Community and Quail
Ridge Alzheimers Special Care were opened. Culpepper Place Assisted Living is currently under construction. New churches such as New Hope Christian, Faith Baptist, Bartlett Woods Church of Christ and Bartlett Hills Baptist had been moving to Bartlett through the years, and the established churches including Bartlett United Methodist, Ellendale Baptist, and St. Ann Catholic were expanding to accommodate their larger congregations. Bartlett Baptist moved to Kirby Whitten Parkway and built a large church as did Fullview Baptist Church, building their new church across the street from the old one. In 2002 the Bartlett Panthers basketball team won the state championship and in 2003 Bartlett was named “Sports Town of the Year” by Newsweek magazine. That year part of the movie “21 Grams” was shot in Bartlett, the first annual Pickin’ Picnic Bluegrass Festival was held, and Time Warner Cable started broadcasting city meetings and events on Channel 17. In 2006, Suzanne Griffith retired from the Bartlett Chamber and John Threadgill became president. Under his leadership, the Chamber broadened its vision to become more pro-active in economic development and in 2008 the Bartlett area attracted more than $100 million in new capital investment, creating more than 700 jobs. A “Team Green Zone” energy efficiency initiative was launched in 2010 as was the Vision 20/’20 initiative. In 2015 the Chamber purchased the building at 2969 Elmore Park, renovating it to accommodate a large meeting space. When the Bartlett City Schools opened in August 2014 the last component in creating a “self-sustaining” city that was the vision of the 1980’s was put into place. The city came together in support of the new municipal school system along with a deeper sense of community pride. Today Bartlett is the 10th largest city in Tennessee with a population of approximately 60,000 and is poised to do very well in the coming decades. We can use our experiences from the last 50 years to insure that Bartlett is a diverse community that welcomes intelligent growth that benefits all its citizens. ~ Sue Griffith Coleman is a former President of the Bartlett Area Chamber and remains active in the community.

Rural in 7½ minutes
artlett is a prime example of a city that is very much a bustling dynamic economy, as its many accolades suggest, while its location affords a quick escape into a rural setting that offers solitude and reflection. The southside of Bartlett is where you will find a dense population with just about all of the amenities you could ask for. But as you drive north, you begin to sense a slower pace that is refreshing. There are many different paths you can take to experience this transition, yet, to me, the best experience is the short drive on Brunswick Road. In 7 ½ minutes you can travel from the largest retail mall in the MidSouth, with all the brand stores expected in an upscale retail experience including a Cheesecake Factory, to a rustic rural setting complete with a feed store and a café that serves catfish and other country vittles. In between you find comfortable suburban housing transitioning into impressive country estates. The experience begins at Wollfchase Galleria, the region’s retail epicenter. From the Main Entrance on the east side parking lot, drive northeast to connect to New Brunswick Road. Look for the six- story Holiday Inn & Suites at Wolfchase. This relatively new hotel is owned by the Wilson Family, whose patriarch, Kemmons Wilson, founded Holiday Inn’s in 1952. This particular hotel serves as a model for the new “look” for the Holiday Inns brand. Continuing north, you will pass many national chain restaurants and motels including Fairfield Inn, Springhill Suites and Best Western Inn & Suites, FRIDAYS, Buffalo Wild Wings, Firebirds and LongHorn Steakhouse. Within less than a mile the road intersects with heavily traveled US Hwy 64. Cross the highway and immediately look to the right for the entrance to Brunswick Road. Almost instantly you notice the shift to a residential environment. Lakeside Behavioral
Health System, on the left, has been a fixture in Bartlett for more than 40 years and is one of the leading addictionrehabilitation centers in the Southeast. Not far up the road is Davies Plantation Road to the right. This takes you into one of Shelby County’s most desirable neighborhoods as well as Shelby County’s oldest residential structure, now a museum, Davies Manor. Continuing on Brunswick Road, to the left, you will pass one of the city’s newest residential developments currently in progress. Just ahead is a Bartlett fire station next to MLGW’s maintenance facilities. From then on it’s all residential and heavily forested. If you have some time, at the intersection with Memphis Arlington Road, take a right and drive alongside some beautiful horse farms. When you come to Anderton Springs Drive on top of the Ridge turn right and come into Davies Plantation neighborhood. At the end of Anderton Springs turn right and follow St. Philip Drive until it ends on Davies Plantation Rd. Hang another right and it takes you back to Brunswick Rd. where you take another right to get back on the trail. Brunswick Rd. intersects with US Hwy 70/79. This was the main road to Nashville before I-40 was built and the drive to the capital city is well worth the experience if you have five hours to spare. North of Hwy 70 you quickly enter into an old rural
neighborhood known as Brunswick Farms. Many of the original families still have a presence in this area but it’s quickly evolving into an upscale suburban community. A nice side trip would be to turn left onto Craven Rd. and then right onto Whiteoaks Lane. The Pleasant Hill Cemetery is ahead on the left. This is one of the oldest cemeteries in Bartlett and well worth a visit. The old Cumberland Presbyterian Church is used for weddings and special occasions. There’s a section within the cemetery that contains Civil War deceased. Now you’re entering the community of Brunswick which was recently incorporated into Bartlett’s city limits. This quaint village dates back to the early 1800’s. Located adjacent to the Loosahatchie River, it still maintains an authentic feel. A little historical footnote is that Stax Records had its first music studio in Brunswick for just over a year before moving to the famous McLemore Avenue site in Memphis. The Brunswick Feed Store is a must-see and the Brunswick Kitchen Cafe across the street attracts people from well beyond the immediate area. If you’d like to continue your journey into the rural Bartlett area you can stay on Brunswick Road for another 10 miles. There are numerous side roads along the way that offer scenic drives into rural Shelby County that few people know about… which makes it that much better for us country road lovers.

Tale of the
Bartlett Ar t Renegades
his history of Bartlett includes a tale never told before, a tale of a gang of renegades who impacted Bartlett as never before in history. A gang with political connections, who were not afraid to use them, the Bartlett Five, they are called. The tale of Sue Griffith Coleman, David Skelton, Dorothy Hirsh, Janet Carr and Buddy Murchison, the Bartlett Five, who implemented the Cultural Arts Committee, which lead to unprecedented growth of the city through the arts. “In 1989, I was part of a band that needed a place to perform,” explains Skelton who is a musician in the Bartlett Community Concert Band. “We noticed that there was a performing arts center on the city budget which was to date unfunded.” The first thing Skelton did was to approach the Board of Mayor and Alderman, and ask for the center to be built. Skelton says that he was then asked by one of the aldermen how many times the band performed. As he spoke the answer, the light began to shine on the fact that more would have to be done to realize his goal. When he said that they performed twice a year, the alderman replied, ‘and what do you propose we do with the facility the other 363 days out of the year?’
How the Bartlett Five banded together to make a difference in the Cultural Arts.
Skelton’s passion for music and his city brought him to Sue Griffith Coleman, the president of the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce in the late 80’s. Both were members of the charter class of Leadership Bartlett in 1990. Part of the program was for small groups to choose a project to work on that would improve the city of Bartlett. One group, including Skelton, Coleman, Carr and Murchison, chose enhancing the cultural arts in Bartlett as all shared the passion and vision of a vibrant arts community and performing arts center. The Cultural Arts Committee was formed in 1990 under the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce and Hirsch, a graduate of Leadership Bartlett Class of 1991 joined it the next year. Over the next several years this committee (Murchison left Bartlett after two years) organized the Bartlett Community Concert Band, the Bartlett Community Chorus and the Bartlett Children’s Chorus. After a year or two all of these organizations were stable enough to move out on their own. The Community Concert Band and Community Chorus continue in existence today. The Childrens Chorus disbanded after 4-5 years. They also implemented “Fourth Fridays for the Arts” at the Village Inn (now La Hacienda Mexican
Restaurant on Stage Road) which were luncheons where local artists performed, as well as other events. The committee continued working for a performing arts center and Ron Jewell, a graduate of Leadership Bartlett Class of 1993, joined in the effort. “I was just a flim flam guy,” said Jewell who has been the director of the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center since it opened in December of 1998. “The truth is that the timing was right, I was marketing director of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and the right people came along at the right time to find me, who had the background to articulate what they envisioned. My role and this center are built on the shoulders of those that came before.” One of those that came before is Hirsh. As manager of Wilson World Hotel in Wolfchase which now operates under another name, it was a marketing strategy, but as a resident of Bartlett she simply wanted to be able to go to concerts and productions without leaving her community. “I love the arts,” said Hirsh. “And I didn’t want to go to Germantown or Memphis to enjoy them. I wanted to enjoy them in my own community.” Janet Carr was an active member of the committee and retired from First Tennessee several years ago. We were unable to locate her for this article. The Leadership Bartlett classes came up with many ideas, a recycling program, senior buses, bicycles for the police department, among others. Many fell by the wayside, but there were some that have made positive changes in Bartlett. “Our goal was not to run the various ideas that were implemented,” explained Coleman. “Our goal was to get them started and find other community members interested in taking them over and running them. So many of the ideas never left the ground, others went on for a short time, and others are still operating. And that was okay, we had to find out what the community wanted and let that be the driving force.” That inclusiveness has realized not only the Bartlett Performing
Arts and Conference Center but the annual firemen fundraising Pancake Breakfast, the Bartlett Rotary Club, and televised Board of Mayor and Aldermen meetings just to name a few. The Bartlett Five attribute the foresight and drive of Mayor Bobby Flaherty to bringing the small, rural town of 1970s to become the
10th largest city in Tennessee today. Mayor Keith McDonald has continued the tradition of growth and leadership into the 21st Century.
Written by David Skelton of Bartlett who has been and continues to be a moving force in the city. Among other things, he is usually the go-to person to MC events in Bartlett.

The Ducks are the stars at the Peabody Hotel.
s a military family the first thing we did when moving to a new location was to find out why people loved the area they called home. While we are now a retired military family, this attitude followed us on our move to the Memphis area. What was it about Memphis that made people love this city? We began exploring to discover the gems of Memphis. Now when family and friends visit us in our Memphis home the question always is “where are you taking us this time?” Like most natives of an area, many Memphians take this unique and fascinating area for granted. I challenge you to take a fresh look at our great city as if it were the first time. Below is a five-day tour of Memphis that we have used when friends and family visit. This is but a snapshot and not a complete listing of everything there is to do in Memphis.
Day one of the tour starts with a trip to the Peabody Hotel to see one of the great American hotels and experience the famous duck march. Make sure you get there early to order a beverage in the grand hotel lobby and stroll through the shops. Next, as it is almost lunch time, head over to the iconic BB Kings Blues Club, enjoy authentic southern cooking, and take in the history during your stroll down Beale Street. At night the place is alive with music and festive activities but don’t discount visiting during the day. Visit WC Handy Park, do a bit of shopping, read the history signs and saunter down the Beale Street Brass Note Walk of Fame. How many of the names are you familiar with? Finish the day with The Haunted Memphis Walking Ghost Tour and discover the eerie legends of Memphis. BARTLETT
BB King’s Blues Club on Beale Street.
Day two is Music Day and there are plenty of music museums to keep you busy. The Stax Museum of American Soul, the home of Stax records, is one of the few museums in the country dedicated to Soul Music. Next stop is the Gibson Guitar Factory to learn the history and see the craftsmanship that goes into these

legendary guitars. Your final visit is to Sun Studio, famous for its unique sound and as the first studio that recorded Elvis Presley. It is said that his first recording was for his Mother.
Day three takes you outside with a trip to the bluffs of the Mississippi
River and the Chickasaw Heritage Park (formerly DeSoto Park) where it is believed Hernando DeSoto first viewed the Mississippi River. The park preserves ceremonial mounds built by the Paleo Indians in the 1590â€™s. During the Civil War these mounds were hollowed out and used

as weapons bunkers as part of Fort Pickering, which was first a Confederate installation and then a Union fortification. The fort was demolished in 1866. A short walk across the street brings you to the gates of the National Ornamental Metal Museum. This is the only institution in the United States dedicated exclusively to the art and craft of metalwork. You can see how art is created and view
the special exhibits. The Ornamental Metal Museum sits on the site of the US Marine Hospital dating back to 1884. The facility was originally used to treat Civil War soldiers and conduct scientific research in hopes of finding a cure for yellow fever.
Day four includes a visit to the Civil Rights Museum. To truly understand the South a visit to this Museum is a must. The former
Lorraine Hotel and site of the assassination of the Reverend Martin Luther King, the museum provides a moving and memorable experience. For yet another view of the South, head over to Mud Island and walk the scale model of the Mississippi River. This walk provides a perspective of the importance and impact this river has not only on the South but the entire country. Don’t forget the Mississippi River Museum at the park detailing the history of the river. Now that you have seen the scale model, walk over to Tom Lee Park and actually touch the mighty Mississippi River. Be sure to plan ahead and book a Mississippi River Boat Dinner Cruise so you can travel on the river.
Day five takes you to the Pink Palace Museum. To view this museum and all that it offers will take many trips. There is a replica of the first self-serve grocery store, a game changer in the grocery industry. Don’t miss the miniature circus, the Planetarium or the 3D Theatre. You can never grow tired of this museum because there is always something that was missed on a previous visit. Memphis has so much to offer. As you visit the different museums and places of interest in the area, you begin to realize that Memphis holds a place in history much greater than you originally thought. You are encouraged to continue the discovery and find the not-so-common attractions to enjoy.

BPACC: Setting the Stage for
Great Performances and Memorable Events
or 17 seasons the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center (BPACC) has provided a stellar line-up of world-class entertainment. The current performance season continues that exciting tradition. In addition BPACC’s conference and meeting facilities have also set the stage for countless professional events. BPACC, which is owned by the City of Bartlett, has become the “go-to” meeting space for corporate executives, civic bodies, and individuals throughout the region. When BPACC began, the concept was to not just offer a place to experience live performances but also an accessible gathering place for business and social exchange. The dual purpose is reflected in the building’s design, technical capabilities, as well as the flexibility of the available spaces. Rooms can be arranged for lectures, conferences or sales meetings as easily as they can be configured for baby showers or family reunions. BPACC’s objective is to help create memorable events for a wide variety of clientele. Many businesses find it necessary to take meetings off-site. A change in location can foster creative solutions and productivity. As a part of its facility rental program, BPACC offers six different spaces that are ideal for professionals and executives to convene. The A.E. Beaty Conference Room features a picturesque view of Appling Lake, providing a quiet, professional atmosphere for its occupants. In every theatre there is a traditional space called the “Green Room” where performers await their cue to go on stage. At BPACC it also serves as an intimate and elegant location for small private discussions or even a secluded executive luncheon. The Studio, which is the largest of the conference spaces, is an exceptionally versatile, sound proof room with floating hardwood floors and 25-foot vaulted ceilings,
making it perfect for dance and acting classes, rehearsals, luncheons, workshops, or planning sessions. The auditorium and main stage are undoubtedly the heart of BPACC. With events ranging from private recitals, special music event, and theatrical productions by outside promoters to corporate seminars, multi-day conferences and training sessions, the auditorium is the most multipurpose space available. With a seating capacity of 350 and equipped with state-of-the-art sound and LED lighting system, the auditorium provides the perfect location to entertain as well as to inform participants. The 2,800 square foot main stage can be rented separately and treated as a large meeting room itself. A variety of seating options can be customized to suit each individual event. Businesses and event planners have numerous choices when it comes to available rental sites. An emphasis on the client experience, affordability and professional attention to detail is what makes the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center the premier facility of choice by leaders throughout the region. Take a virtual tour of the Mid-South’s most intimate concert and conference facility at www.bpacc.org or call 901-385-6440 to schedule a personal site visit.

old (built between 1866-1916); 47 homes that are more than 50 years old (built between 1916-1966); and nine homes built in the last 50 years (1966 to the present). 51
The Gotten House
OLDEST HOMES IN THE BARTLETT AREA Davies Manor on Davies Plantation Road Originally a log cabin built in 1830s and improved over the following century, Davies Manor is considered the oldest house in Shelby County. The Davies family moved into the cabin in 1838 and occupied the house for 150 years. The once extensive property was a working plantation with a library, post office and general store. Today the home is a museum and cultural center. Cedar Hall on Broadway Road in Ellendale Built in 1845 by Dr. Samuel Bond, the mansion was originally called The Avenues. The landmark house is a BARTLETT
two-story brick Greek Revival mansion which has been refurbished through the years and today is a Bed & Breakfast.
OVER 100 YEARS OLD IN HISTORIC DISTRICT COURT STREET 2969 Court â€“ Bartlett Museum/Gotten House In 1871, Nicholas Gotten engaged James Oglesby to build a home in traditional New England saltbox style for his family. The family lived there until the early 1900s. Descendants are still active in the Bartlett community and museum.

SYCAMORE VIEW ROAD 2923 Sycamore View Built in 1890 and known as the Pruden home, the current owners have made extensive improvements. 2943 Sycamore View Traced back to 1868 when Col. Clark Russell Barteau bought the simple two room cabin. He and his wife, Zura, kept a school in the house for many years. The present owners have done extensive renovations. 2944 Sycamore View William Ward had the Victorian piano style home built in 1871 by James Oglesby. It was later bought by the Lilly family who owned the Lilly Carriage Company.The house passed through several owners and in 1952 was purchased by Clarence Saunders of the Piggly Wiggly grocery store fame, who died there in 1953. 2957 Sycamore View Built in 1910; no history available. 3029 Sycamore View The oldest home in Bartlett Historic District was built for Rev.

Klinke family of the Klinke Dairies, and resided in until 1998. The present owners bought the home in 2000 and made extensive changes to the house. 3077 Sycamore View A beautiful curved mahogany staircase is one of the features of this home, built in 1869 by James Oglesby for Dr. Nicholas and Virginia Blackwell in the Gothic Revival architecture style. Descendants of the Blackwells lived in the home until the early 1980s. 3101 Sycamore View Built circa 1870, this home features a gable-front-andwing Folk Victorian cottage with two corbelled masonry chimneys serving two fireplaces each. The present owners are renovating it. 3292 Sycamore View Built by Henry Clifton Sr. around 1890, this house was constructed of 12 x 18 hand hewn logs from yellow poplar trees located on the property.
NOT IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT 5653 Stage Road This frame home, on the southwest corner of Stage Road and Shelby Street, was built in 1873-74 by Buckley J. Kimbrough and wife Julia. The residence consisted of four rooms, a hall and a dining room.
eniors, and by that we don’t mean fourthyear high school and college students, are referred to by a variety of descriptive terms: elderly, older people, 55+ consumers, aging adults, seasoned citizens or, as the Durham Foundation call this group, “God’s older children.” The reality is that with ever-increasing improvements in medical care and other factors such as improved diet and exercise, the average longevity of the 65 year-old adult has now reached 86.6 years for women and 85.3 for men. One of four seniors will live past 90 and one of ten will reach 95. Truly, 50 is the new 35! How many seniors are there in Bartlett? The American Census Quick Facts from their latest data states that 12.5% of the Bartlett population is 65 or older. Based on the city’s population of 58,264, that means there are approximately 7,300 seniors, enough to form a Political Action Committee and swing some local elections… but I digress. While many seniors continue to enjoy living in their Bartlett area homes, some are beginning to consider downsizing as the responsibilities of maintaining a yard and a house become more challenging or just too time consuming. There are, happily, a growing number of alternatives for

home ownership in the Bartlett area. These include zero-lot line homes, which finally received approved zoning and are gaining in popularity, as well as assisted living communities including Elmcroft, Robinwood, Ave Maria Home, and others. If more intensive or rehabilitation care is required, The King’s Daughters and Sons Home, Quail Ridge Alzheimer’s Place, the aforementioned Ave Maria, and Rainbow Health and Rehab are conveniently located in Bartlett. With ever-increasing good health and affluence, seniors are more and more active than in previous generations. Dining out, entertainment, travel, exercising, educational opportunities, time with family and friends top the list of priorities for seniors. The Bartlett area offers a plethora of resources and activities for seniors including restaurants both fine and casual with some featuring senior-priced menus. Musical performances, plays, comedians and magicians appear at The Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center (3663 Appling / 385-6440). Don’t forget to check out the Bartlett Library (5884 Stage/ 386-8968) where senior-related programs such as “iPads for Seniors”, “Colorcopia” and AARP income tax services are offered. We recommend a call ahead for scheduling. For a small annual membership fee, the Bartlett Senior Center (5727 Woodlawn / 385-6439) provides an extensive range of activities from canasta, creative writing, crafts, to dances and even Tai Chi and Yoga. Bartlett prides itself on its network of family parks for gatherings, festivals and a Farmers Market during the season. Golf, anyone? Quail Ridge and Stonebridge Golf courses offer rates for senior scratch golfers and duffers
alike. Many churches have senior activity groups which provide opportunities to socialize and travel. Health, financial stability and family are the top three interests of seniors. Unfortunately, we have only so much control over these factors and circumstances may occur for which there is no recourse. Fortunately, the upside is that the more years we are on this planet, the more we understand and accept adversity. Through patience and in many cases, faith, we can overcome disappointments and continue on. Cynicism and depression can happen; however, we must remember we can only control one thing and that is ourselves (well, maybe not our bladders). Sometimes it is difficult to remember that there is a silver lining, but we must be patient. As my late Mother taught me to pray, “God, please give me patience. RIGHT NOW!” Remember to keep your sense of humor and take things with a grain of salt. But be careful, too much salt is not good for you! Now here are a few tips to brighten your life: consider volunteering your time to a non-profit that provides services to those in need or supports a cause you support. There is a list of those organizations in the Commercial Appeal each week. And my personal favorite tip: please adopt a companion animal - not a puppy or kitten… but, perhaps an older animal. Call the Bartlett Shelter 385-6484. You won’t regret it. There is one constant, and that is we are grateful to live in Bartlett.

) LIFESTYLES Enhancing the quality of life for all residents of Bartlett
ince the creation of the Department of Parks & Recreation in the early 80’s, the City of Bartlett has prided itself on its quantity and quality of parks. Its mission is to “enhance the quality of life for all residents of Bartlett by providing diverse and quality leisure programs, services, and facilities that encourage health, fitness, relaxation, enjoyment, and learning, as well as providing opportunities for community involvement”. Nearly 1000 acres of public land is set aside for the enjoyment of children, young and mature adults, and senior citizens. There are 14 miles of walking trails, 2.6 miles of nature trails, over 11 miles of mountain bike trails, eight soccer fields, 15 baseball & softball fields, five multi-purpose field’s, a 25’ x 25’ swimming pool
and all within the 29 parks owned and managed by the City. Bartlett claims one of the only three Cricket Fields in Shelby County. The City of Bartlett maintains the Singleton Community Center with over 150 various program activities as well as the Bartlett Senior Center. The newly created Splash Park opened in June of 2015 which averages over 200 kids a day during the summer. Bartlett has consistently met or exceeded the guidelines of the National Parks & Recreation Association which advocates a minimum of 6.25 – 10.5 acres of open space per 1000 population. In 2015 Bartlett received the top award from the Tennessee Parks & Recreation Association for “Most Outstanding BARTLETT
Maintenance Supervisor” presented to Bo Maharrey. Also, that same year Warren Young received the “Most Outstanding Volunteer” award for his work on designing and building the 2.6 nature trail in Nesbit Park alongside City of Bartlett’s GIS professional Todd Graves. In addition to existing park space the City is diligently planning for the future. It’s vison of a 20 mile greenway trail that ties into the Shelby County network will bring new opportunities for extensive biking, running and walking. With a full time staff of 41 and 163 part time and seasonal staff, Director David Thompson and Assistant Director Shan Criswell have led an exceptional team that provide the citizens of Bartlett a world class amenity.

Counts Quick response is key when stroke symptons appear.
t was early on a Saturday morning, and as Ezaldeen Abushanab arrived at work, he felt under the weather. “I was tired and dizzy,” said Ezaldeen. “I didn’t have any energy.” Ezaldeen decided to make a quick trip to pick up something to eat, hoping that would make him feel better. On the way to the restaurant, other drivers honked at Ezeldeen because he was having difficulty controlling his vehicle. When he was ready to eat, Ezeldeen was unable to drink his soda without spilling it. Somehow Ezeldeen managed to avoid causing an accident while driving back to work. “The way I walked back into the office, it looked like I was drunk.” But Ezaldeen wasn’t drunk, he was having a stroke. Ezaldeen had typical stroke symptoms including a drooping mouth, slurred speech, dizziness, and difficulty moving his arm. However, the possibility that he might be experiencing a stroke never occurred to him. “I know all about the signs of a heart attack. I am 52
years old, and I thought that strokes only happened to senior citizens,” explained Ezaldeen. “I just thought I needed to go to sleep.” Fortunately, Ezaldeen’s coworkers realized something was wrong. They called 9-1-1. The paramedics evaluated Ezaldeen and rushed him to Saint Francis HospitalBartlett. “When we arrived at the hospital, everything happened very quickly,” said Julie, Abushanab, Ezaldeen’s wife. “There was a feeling of urgency.” That was because time is of the essence for stroke victims. A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or blocked. However, if an ischemic stroke patient is able to receive a clot-busting drug called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) within four hours of the onset of stroke symptoms, the chance of recovering from a stroke may be improved. “Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett provides a teleneurology service called ‘Specialists on Call’ for our stroke patients,” said Cammie Hughes, R.N., stroke coordinator. “This 24/7
service allows our patients to be quickly evaluated by a neurologist via computer screen. The neurologist is then able to diagnose the stroke and make treatment recommendations to our emergency room physicians, the patient, and his or her family. This saves valuable time in our efforts to diagnose and treat stroke.” Because Ezaldeen arrived at Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett soon after the onset of his stroke symptoms, he was able to be treated with tPA. Ezaldeen spent the next 24 hours in ICU before being transferred to a general hospital room. Less than 72 hours after arriving at the hospital as a stroke victim, Ezaldeen was released from the hospital. “The Joint Commission has recognized Saint Francis HospitalBartlett with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers,” said Hughes. “We were able to achieve Primary Stroke Center Certification because we demonstrated that our program meets critical elements of performance to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes for stroke patients. “ Ezaldeen is one of those patients with an excellent outcome. He hasn’t experienced any lasting effects from his stroke. “I received excellent care,” said Ezaldeen. “From the moment I arrived in the emergency room until the moment I left the hospital, I felt like I was in good hands and that the doctors and nurses were focused on doing all they could for me.” “There were a lot of things that could have gone wrong from the moment Ezaldeen’s stroke symptoms started,” said Julie. “This experience has really helped us put life into perspective. We’re very thankful.”
Stroke SymptomsAct F.A.S.T. Symptoms of a stroke happen quickly. Stroke is an emergency, and it is important to act F.A.S.T. Face: Look for an uneven smile. Arms: Check if one arm is weak or drifts downward when the person tries to raise both arms. Speech: Listen for slurred speech. Time: Call 9-1-1 immediately if you see any of these signs. BARTLETT

OUTDOORS in the Mid-South
H i k i n g , B o a ti n g & C a m p i n g
or Mid-Southerners who enjoy the outdoors but are not serious hunters or fishermen, there are many activities and adventures available within an easy day’s drive. One of the big advantages of our region is its geographical and cultural diversity. Within a 350 mile radius of the Memphis area you can enjoy the tallest mountains in the eastern U.S., the nation’s clearest and cleanest lakes and streams, the most bio-diverse forests in North America, and all types of wildlife, big and small. Whether you’re looking for a quick day trip, a long weekend or just a few hours outdoors it’s waiting for you at your convenience. Some of our most popular outdoor destinations are included in this article, but there are many more where these come from…. Always remember that all outdoor activities should be conducted with the weather in mind. During the hot summer months higher elevations are always preferable for hiking (2,000 ft. and above). The prime season for hiking and camping in the Mid-South is September – May.
P referred H iking T rails :
Nesbit Park (Bartlett) Although Nesbit is known for its extensive mountain bike trails, for those seeking a quick retreat from the urban environment a new hiking trail was recently completed. http://www.midsouthtrails.com/msta/nesbit_ park.html Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park (three mile nature loop) One of the state’s most visited parks; Meeman-Shelby Forest is conveniently located just north of Downtown Memphis. The loop trail begins near the park’s Main Office and provides a surprisingly great workout, especially in the cooler spring, fall and even winter months. Do not attempt in hot humid weather. http:// tnstateparks.com/parks/about/meeman-shelby Reelfoot Lake (Tennessee State Park) While plans are in the pipeline for a trail that will encompass the north 12+ miles of the north shore, there are currently just a few hiking trails. The best way to experience Reelfoot is by boat, and canoes or motor boats are available for rent. There are some very primitive areas within the lake’s boundaries
that may spook some and yet invigorate others. The Welcome Center staff provides all the information a visitor needs to experience the lake as well as the ‘down and dirty’ on what to see and do. Don’t forget to eat at Boyette’s and go to Union City to Discovery Park! http://tnstateparks. com/parks/about/reelfoot-lake Ft. Pillow State Historic Park (Tennessee) Ft. Pillow Park is focused more on Civil War history than nature but provides 15 miles of very picturesque and secluded trails. A little further down the highway is the Lower Hatchie River Wildlife Refuge. A rudimentary trail provides an outstanding view of the Mississippi River that unfortunately gets overgrown during the summer, making fall and winter the best time for enjoying the trail. http:// tnstateparks.com/parks/about/fort-pillow Hot Springs National Park (Arkansas) Hot Springs has an extensive trail network within the heart of the city. Nestled in the Oauchita Mountains and only a three hour drive from the Memphis area, the Springs are actually pretty impressive and a spa treatment is definitely worth the experience. http://www.nps.gov/ hosp/index.htm
Petit Jean State Park (Arkansas) One of Arkansas’ favorite parks atop a small plateau with waterfalls and canyons, Petit Jean offers numerous trails and other activities and is only a three-hour drive away. http://www.petitjeanstatepark.com/ Big Hill Pond State Park (West Tennessee) Featuring hills, cypress swamps and limestone outcroppings all thrown together, this park is one of the most unique in West Tennessee. I used to take my daughter hiking here often. A one-hour drive from Bartlett leaves plenty of time for a nice day of sightseeing and hiking. http:// tnstateparks.com/parks/about/big-hillpond William B. Clark Preserve Boardwalk (Rossville, TN) This is one of the best boardwalks in West Tennessee for observing the bottomland ecosystem. If you have never experienced a dense Cypress/Tupelo forest, this is a must. http://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/ regions/northamerica/unitedstates/tennessee/ placesweprotect/william-b-clark-conservation-area.xml Lady’s Bluff Small Wild Area Trail (TVA – Kentucky Lake) Overlooking the Tennessee River, this trail offers stunning views. When combined with a visit to nearby Mousetail State Park and/or Chickasaw State Park, you will experience a long but full day. http://www.tva.gov/ river/recreation/dispersed/trail-table_hold.htm Sipsey National Wilderness Area (Alabama) You can make this a very special one day excursion and be back by dark or do an overnighter. Although Sipsey is the most western expanse of the Appalachian Mountain Chain, don’t expect any mountains. It’s mostly the remnants of the Cumberland Plateau; instead of climbing mountains you will descend into small canyons thick with Appalachian flora. This is the beginning, or the end depending on your perspective, of the Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel western reach. Numerous clear streams,
interesting rock formations, narrow passageways and lush vegetation make this a great hiking adventure. http://www.sipseywilderness.org/ Dismal Canyon (Alabama) Located close to Sipsey National Wilderness, Dismal Canyon is privately owned. A sort of a rustic Rock City, instead of being on top of a mountain you’re down in a steep narrow canyon. This is one of only two places in the world that has a certain type of Glow Worm. The other location in New Zealand…go figure! http://www.dismalscanyon.com/ W hitewater rafting :
Spring River (Arkansas) The closest whitewater experience to Memphis is Spring River in Hardy, Arkansas, an easy 2.5 hour drive. This very unique river is actually created by one mammoth spring (which is its official name), and is said to be able to supply the city of New York with all its water needs. The river it forms is always ice cold. http://www.arkansas.com/outdoors/water-activities/ lakes-rivers/river.aspx?id=15 Current River National Park (Missouri) This river is my idea of what a great tubing river should be. In fact, I can think of no other river anywhere that compares to the Current. As the name implies, it has a swift current but no rapids. Your float is seldom interrupted except for a few gravel shoals which are easily maneuverable. The river is fed by numerous springs some of which are big (check out Big Spring), yet the water maintains a very pleasant temperature. This is great family fun and the outfitters make it easy. http://www.nps.gov/ozar/index.htm W eekend R etreats :
Tellico Plains and the Cherohala Skyway If you’re seeking a nice extended weekend retreat, a reprieve from the heat or to gaze upon nature’s amazing color
display in the fall, this is the place. Tellico Plains, located northeast of Chattanooga, is the quintessential experience of the South’s High Country when approaching from the east. Avoid the hassle of bumper to bumper traffic in the Smoky Mountains and discover a beautiful slice of the Appalachian Mountains that offers a wonderful experience for the whole family. The Scenic Cherohala Skyway is a great introduction to the region. Excellent hiking trails include Bald River Falls Trail and by far the most scenic hike in the area is the Huckleberry Knob Trail. At the end of the Skyway is the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, which is a must-see. This area is a perfect location for escaping the heat. http://www.tellicoplains.com/tellico-river-bald-river-falls.html The Tellico River is a wonderful free flowing river with excellent swimming holes and famous for its trout fishing. The nearby Hiwassee River and Ocoee River also offer great fun for the family. http://www.hiwasseeoutfitters.com/

More Gains to Come
he first year of Bartlett City Schools (BCS) is much like the first year of a child’s life. An inaugural year has many milestones that must be documented and celebrated. Our staff, teachers, students, and parents support an attitude of excellence each and every day. I am incredibly proud of our inaugural year and excited about our future. Entering the second year, however, growth and development becomes the focus. To achieve its goals, BCS will continue to rely upon highly effective teachers, proven school leadership, supportive district staff, and an engaged community. We can look back on this first year with a true sense of accomplishment. Implementing the 1:1 (one to one) initiative is an accomplishment that is a source of pride for our community. All students in grades 6 – 9 received an 11” MacBook Air. Students have continuous, meaningful exposure to technology, which is a necessity in today’s world. MacBooks are used daily across the curriculum to facilitate research, creativity, and personal involvement in learning. Students at each campus come to school excited about learning as teachers step out of their comfort zones to implement engaging, technology-based lessons. According to Vanessa Moore, geometry and German teacher at BCS’s Ninth Grade Academy, “The one to one environment has given me the ability to monitor student practice in a way that I never thought possible. I presented the students with an individual activity and as the students worked through the activity, I can watch their answers appear in real time on my computer.” Students are supported in this endeavor by teachers as well as outside sources. Bartlett City Schools is the first school district in the U.S. to have Apple Care Enterprise (ACE), which 75
gives our students 24-hour phone access to assistance. In addition ACE provides a two-day turnaround on MacBook repairs. The third component of the program assures that teachers receive pertinent Professional Development monthly from an Apple Trainer. Bartlett City Schools is honored to be one of the 12 school districts across our state to achieve Exemplary status, the Tennessee Department of Education’s (TDOE) highest designation. Districts receiving this designation are those that significantly improved student performance and narrowed achievement
gaps under Tennessee’s accountability system. According to TDOE, Exemplary districts are those who have met the majority of their achievement goals, have met the majority of their goals to close the achievement gaps, and have ensured every subgroup – students with disabilities, racial minorities, English learners, and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds – also moves forward in the majority of its target areas. Achieving exemplary status is a tribute to the tenacity and hard work of students, parents, teachers, administrators, as well as the community. Within Bartlett City School’s spotlight, Bon Lin Elementary School has received a special recognition
that is reserved for the top five percent of the schools across the state of Tennessee as measured by overall student achievement levels. Another milestone for our school district is the creation of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Honors Academy, a significant addition to Rivercrest Elementary School. Bartlett, embracing the importance of students being well rounded, added the arts as a natural flow for our instruction. Therefore, we created a STEAM rather than STEM academy. Students across the district were encouraged to apply to be included in the STEAM Academy. Ninety-one students were accepted in grades 1-5. Project Lead the Way is the nation’s lead provider of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum and professional development. After much research, Project Lead the Way was selected as our avenue for effective training for our STEAM teachers and a unique project-based curriculum. Those students who were accepted into the academy get STEAM integration into their instructional time. Rivercrest assistant principal Tonjua Woods shared, “Students are learning it is ok if they have to come back and correct later to make their project better. They aren’t afraid to try.” With the focus on growth and development, Rivercrest is a starting point for future STEAM expansion to all grades K-12. The Bartlett community has been very supportive of all facets of our new school district. We look forward to many improvements and adjustments as we continue to hone our skills to enable us to offer a first class education to all students at all levels. With the continued support our community partners, we will build upon our strong foundation.
odayâ€™s workplace environment has changed dramatically in the 150 years that Bartlett has been incorporated. Yet the past 20 years has been even more radical. Technologies that were just becoming reality a few decades ago have become fully integrated into every aspect of our lives. Not only has the digital age impacted how we plan, communicate and strategize at work but it also has had profound impact on how we interconnect socially. Everyone today is on a constant learning curve and to remain relevant we must all stay abreast of a changing landscape. The need for advanced training and learning has never been more important. Itâ€™s good to know that numerous organizations are stepping up to the plate to ensure that all of us have the options necessary to remain competitive. The Bartlett Chamber has many members that provide a broad array of post-secondary education opportunities. From learning the culinary arts to operating a one-half million dollar Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine, there are institutions in the Bartlett area designed to help you develop marketable skills or to fine tune the ones you already possess. Here are some of the entities that offer advanced studies: BELHAVEN MEMPHIS/ DESOTO COUNTY The Memphis, Tennessee and DeSoto County (in north Mississippi) campuses of Belhaven University, offer accelerated adult education and graduate degrees that enable working adults to fit a quality, higher education into their busy schedule and budget. Taught by field specialists in small classes, the programs provide a relevant education within a Christian worldview. BETHEL UNIVERSITY MEMPHIS The Memphis campus has been serving non-traditional learners since January of 2004. Ten classrooms are located in a two-story brick building located just off Poplar Avenue at 5885 Ridgeway Center Parkway, near the Hilton. The campus is currently home to the Academic Affairs Coordinator for the MBA Program, the Associate Director of MBA Student Services, and the Associate Director of Corporate Development/Recruitment. Students enjoy free wifi and two kitchens outfitted with vending machines, refrigerators, sinks, and microwaves.
Christian Brothers University is a four-year, private university founded on the heritage of Lasallian education in Memphis, TN. While large enough to provide educational opportunities in the arts, business, education, engineering and sciences, the University is small enough to keep its student/faculty ratio to 13:1. Our student body is full of diverse cultures, faiths, and interests. The University welcomes students into an educational community of faith and service that is committed to academic excellence. ITT Technical Institute A leading private postsecondary institutions that offer vocational career training for careers in the growing field of health care. Concorde serves the segment of the population seeking a career-focused education. Currently operate 16 campuses in 8 states. L’École Culinaire offers educational opportunities for the aspiring, careerminded chef. Students experience hands-on learning and careerbased instruction by professionals in the culinary industry. As an ACCSC accredited culinary school, L’École Culinaire prepares students for careers in the culinary industry by offering associate degrees and diplomas in the culinary arts. William R. Moore College of Technology (Moore Tech) is to provide students with the training and skills necessary to become successful in business and industry.

Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce
Growing into the
ne of the major challenges facing growing communities in this new century is providing “employers with the talent they need to compete and people have the skills they need to get good jobs,” as a plan prepared in collaboration of the Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce (GMACW) and the Brookings Institution puts it. This is an especially acute problem for the Memphis area where the “persistently low levels of educational attainment pose a formidable barrier to the regional economy’s potential to grow and diversify.” Since its inception in 2014, GMACW has worked closely with the Bartlett Chamber and the Greater Memphis Medical Device Council to identify the workforce skills needed by employers in the medical device industrial sector, the largest export sector in Tennessee providing jobs for more than 6,000 people in the Memphis/Bartlett area. Beginning in January, 2016, the first step towards meeting these skill requirements begins with the establishment of a dual credit (high school and college credit) machining program at Bartlett High School in cooperation with the Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Memphis. The program
will be available for high school students during the day and to adult students during the evening hours. The ultimate goal of the GMACW, the Bartlett Chamber and the Medical Device Council partnership is to establish a Medical Device Institute that will provide employers with a dedicated facility to train the skilled workforce they need to grow their companies and to attract future companies to the community. This is just one example of the GMACW effort to meet the education and training needs of employers by delivering innovative new strategies and tools while helping area residents successfully navigate career pathways.

2015 ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR
David Skelton Evergreen / Safe Air Solutions
en years ago, while on his weekly airline commute to his job in Michigan, Bartlett resident David Skelton read a Wall Street Journal article about a one-year medical study on the impact of installing in-duct germicidal lamps into large office buildings… otherwise known as ultraviolent light or UVC. The published results were impressive, with as much as a 60% decrease in health complaints and respiratory illnesses reported by more than 700 building occupants. This was of great interest to David because he was in the process of relocating his mother, who suffered from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), to his home in Bartlett. Knowing that the Memphis area was notorious for allergy sufferers, he was extremely hopeful about the impact UVC technology might have on his mother’s condition. As he did more research, he came across another study commissioned by the EPA that also showed a high-level reduction in student and staff illness and absenteeism in K - 12 schools with UVC lighting systems; along with a substantial increase in student performance and test scores. Realizing that this might be of substantial benefit for his mother who was using a prescription inhaler four times daily, David and his wife decided to install UVC lighting in their home HVAC unit. Within a few weeks of installing the system, David’s mom was able to reduce use of her prescription inhaler from four times daily to only once at bedtime; decreased her oxygen tank use from around-the-clock to one hour per day; and was able to move from a wheelchair to a walker and ultimately to a cane. After sharing her success with others, David was soon installing UVC systems into the homes of friends, relatives and church members… all with equally remarkable results. David and his wife decided that this might be a business opportunity that provided positive, healthful benefits and would eliminate the weekly commute to Michigan. In
the summer of 2005, he quit his job and launched Safe Air Solutions from a spare bedroom and rented a 10 x 10 mini-storage unit for a warehouse. While selling his product on the basis of cleaner air and a healthier environment, an energy study was published in 2008 that showed a 20% decrease in HVAC energy consumption after UVC installation. Soon afterwards our entrepreneur was restructuring his business model from a residential ‘health’ focus to commercial energy savings. David’s first big contract came when the University of Memphis requested the installation of UVC lighting into 161 air handlers in 37 buildings on the campus. The success at the University of Memphis, coupled with improved health benefits, corporate risk mitigation, and increased energy efficiency led to UVC contracts with museums, state capital buildings, schools systems, hospitals, clinics, laboratories and office buildings in ten states. In 2012, Safe Air Solutions became a charter member of the Bartlett Chamber’s Team Green Zone initiative whose mission is to help area businesses save money through energy efficiency measures while reducing their carbon footprint. In late 2013, David and Susan decided to purchase a 52-year-old manufacturing company and build their own products; vertically integrating the business from raw materials to manufactured products to installation and commissioning. Today, Safe Air Solutions remains a stand-alone UVC installation / marketing company, installing products manufactured by their sister company, Evergreen UV. In 2014, the company moved out of the spare bedroom and mini-storage unit into a 15,000 square-foot manufacturing facility on Thomas Road and added ten new employees to the four employees from the former company. Evergreen / Safe Air Solutions has an international reach selling in such countries as Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Brazil, and Hong Kong. Their international market 83
growth was helped substantially by endorsements from the Center for Disease Control and the United Nations Partners in Health, resulting in large export purchases for hospitals. When Evergreen UV launched a Federal Contracting effort in 2014, the company secured large orders from the Department of Homeland Security and a recent commitment from eleven VA hospitals in Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. Starting in the spring of 2015, Evergreen UV began an HVAC energy efficiency project on nine college campuses in Kentucky, and installed UVC products for a hospital in Puerto Rico later in the summer. On May 29, 2015, Evergreen UV celebrated with friends
and employees the firm’s first anniversary as a fullservice manufacturer. An open house, a cookout, an official ribbon-cutting ceremony provided by the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce, and a presentation / gift of advanced environmental disinfection systems for each of the nurses’ clinics in all twelve of the Bartlett School System schools made for a very busy and joyous celebration. Fifty years ago, David Skelton was a student at Elmore Park Elementary School. Twenty-five years ago, his children were students at Oak Road Elementary School, and recently, their grandson, Danny, completed the 2nd grade at Alturia Elementary. David and Susan were high school sweethearts and married in 1973. They moved back to Bartlett in 1978, where they started both a family and a business. David graduated from the inaugural class of Leadership Bartlett in 1990. Since then, he has served as past chairman of the Bartlett Chamber’s Cultural Arts Committee, chairman of the Bartlett Parks Department Advisory Board, Manager and 10-year Board member of the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center, Board member of the Bartlett Community Theater, organizer and officer of the Bartlett Area Chorus and the Bartlett Area Concert Band (25 year participant), and enjoys his MC duties for the Bartlett 4th of July Fireworks Show, Veterans Day Ceremony, and Christmas Parade. Susan is the numbers person. She left her employment at David Patrick CPA last year to join Evergreen UV as the CFO responsible for all contract negotiations and corporate finances. Their daughter, Kate Meredith, left Greenway Home Services after ten years to join Evergreen UV as the Director of Operations. Son-in-law, Johnny Meredith, has headed the professional installation group of Safe Air Solutions since its organization in 2005. David’s favorite mantra, which is very appropriate for an entrepreneur is this: “You are either working to build your dream, or you are being paid by someone to build their dream.”

LEGACY BUSINESSES IN BARTLETT 25 Years or more in Business
his is a list of legacy businesses, companies that are 25 years or older and still in operation. The 1990-91 Chamber Directory was used as a starting point and may not be a complete list, but is representative of what was in Bartlett. The oldest continuing business in Bartlett is Warr & Guerin Garage which began as Warr & McCulley in the early 1920s at its present location on the corner of Stage Road and Bartlett Road. Originally it specialized in repairing farm equipment. Through the years the name changed several times and the work changed from farm equipment to cars and trucks. Bobby Guerin, who worked with founder T. E. (Evan) Warr, purchased the garage in 1971 and the name changed to Warr & Guerin. In 1979 Jeff Livingston started working there, and in 1996 he purchased the business and is the current owner, but did not change the name. Of special note is a Warr & Guerin Garage, 1950s business that was almost as old as Warr & Guerin. Breathett Funeral Home was established in 1919 by George Breathett and located at the south end of Shelby Street. George Breathett (1881-1930) was the son of Alex Breathett who was born about 1847 in KY. This black funeral home stayed in the Breathett family until it closed in 2000. Since Bartlett was a very small town before the 1980s we would like to recognize a few businesses that were here for many years but are no longer in operation. Red Fuller’s gas station on north side of Stage Road between Court Street and Sycamore View. O.S. (Red) Fuller was the owner and also the fire chief of a volunteer fire department. By accounts he was involved in many facets of Bartlett, including serving as alderman. Shelby Center Ace Hardware at 6777 Stage Road (by Four Way). A hardware store owned by the Appling family (no date for origin) was bought by Glen Morrison in 1964. Mr. Morrison also bought a hardware store around the corner on the west side of Summer Avenue in a row of businesses owned by Noland Cleaves. Mr. Morrison combined the two stores at the Stage address and he and his family served the community for 34 years until 1998.
Shelby Restaurant and Shelby Motel at 6803 Summer Avenue. The Shelby Restaurant opened in 1952 was known far and wide for its catfish and hushpuppies. It was also the place when all the men met in the mornings to discuss the matters of Bartlett. It was owned by Charlie and Virginia Pitts for many years. It burned to the ground in 1998 and was never rebuilt. The Motel building still stands.

Economy and the 21st Century
stablished in 1866 Bartlett started out as a quiet rural community nearly three hours by horseback from downtown Memphis. It remained an agricultural based economy well into the 20th Century providing dairy products to the City of Memphis as well as cotton. By 1970 the community’s population had barely surpassed 1000 people. The decade of the 70’s, however, was the decade of change. As Memphis grew and expanded so too did Bartlett. By 1980 the population exceeded 17,000. This rapid growth brought newcomers that would assume the role of community leaders. They knew that forward thinking was needed to ensure a sustainable future. Bartlett was fortunate in that it had the people with the right stuff to make it happen. By the mid 1980’s the growing city was developing plans for an industrial park that would BARTLETT

It is home to multimillion dollar locally grown enterprises as well as international giants in their respective industries. The park contains more than 100 businesses employing in excess of 5000 taxpaying citizens. Although Bartlett Corporate Park is not dominated by any one industry it is recognized as the epicentre of the medical device industry in Shelby County. The skills and talent of the individuals that make up the Bartlett workforce is aggressively pursued by the companies located in the area.

economy is critical. Thatâ€™s why the Bartlett Chamber, Bartlett City Schools, city officials and other workforce related organizations are working together to make a qualified workforce the essential part of its strategy. In addition to its strong industrial base, the Bartlett area contains the largest retail concentration in a three state region. Memphis area shoppers as well as out of towners, who think nothing of driving 100 miles, find most of their eclectic needs fulfilled within the retail corridor of Wolfchase & Germantown Parkway. The recent addition of the Cheesecake Factory inside Wolfchase Galleria and the construction of Ikea in 2016 is a strong indication of the viability of the area and in the growth potential of both the retail and residential sectors. The business services sector is the third component of the Bartlett economy and itâ€™s doing extremely well. As manufacturers, wholesalers/distributors, retail and housing continue to grow and prosper so too do the professionals that provide the expertise to help them grow. Accountants, attorneys, engineers, architects, contractors, developers, advisors and strategists are just a few of the occupations that are fundamental to a dynamic economy. The Bartlett economy is strong and well positioned for

the decades ahead. The challenges facing Bartlett are typical of most growing communities but as long as the city is willing and able to focus on a strong workforce, available real estate, pro-business environment, competent elected officials and a business sector that believes in a level playing field our future will remain bright.
