Are we sure this is the Most eastern part of the city, and not Cordova??

Raleigh is on the northern side of the I-240 loop, with Frayser to its west. The two communities are split by Warford Street. Cordova is in the burbs all the way out I-40, about 5 exits past Raleigh.

Cordova was annexed by the city of Memphis, so it would be the easternmost part of the city. Memphis also annexed the Wolfchase Galleria area, which is east of Bartlett. - CKB

P.S. I corrected some grammatical mistakes in the comment above the one I typed. - CKB

I had it as being in northcentral Memphis and someone changed it to northeastern. I agree with you that is incorrect, as any map will show. I'll change it back.

One point of disgreement--Raleigh and Frayser are not and never have been separated by Warford/New Allen. The Memphis city limit until 1975 was the Illinois Central Railroad. Everyone to the west of the railroad attended Frayser schools (such as Trezevant), everyone to the east attending Raleigh schools (such as Scenic Hills). If Warford had been the dividing line, kids living in Scenic Hills would not have attended Scenic Hills School! Historydude58 (talk) 08:45, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
