Situated just above East Memphis, Berclair is a seven-minute drive from Shelby Farms Park and a 15-minute drive from St. Jude. Summer Avenue, one of the city’s main drags, was once known as the “Highway of America.” Today, it is a popular destination for thrift store shopping in Memphis.
Berclair-Highland Heights consists of cozy homes and quiet streets and is home to Aurora Collegiate Academy and Grahamwood Elementary, some of the city’s top primary schools. Berclair was originally developed shortly after WW2, to accommodate smaller families. Today, it is largely considered convenient for its proximity to Downtown Memphis and family-friendly for its affordable housing.
