Southeast of Memphis lies Germantown, a suburb incorporated in 1841 that now boasts a growing population of 40,000 residents.
The Shelby County town’s oldest areas are built around a train depot, where a museum chronicles the area’s storied railroad history and the industries it supported. But Germantown is also known for its wide open spaces. The municipality boasts more than 700 acres of parkland, with more than 11 miles of trails linking neighborhoods to greenspaces.
A suburb with historic charm and plenty of things to see and do, Germantown offers community green spaces, shopping and dining, recreation and small-town fun in the form of annual festivals.
