Eads is an unincorporated community in Shelby County, Tennessee, United States named after Civil War engineer James Buchanan Eads. Some of Eads (and some surrounding areas) have been annexed by the city of Memphis. Some of its area is currently still unincorporated. Eads is located north of Collierville, west of Somerville, east of Memphis and east of Bartlett. The Eads zip code (38028) stretches into both Shelby County and Fayette County, including parts of Hickory Withe and Fisherville. Major roads in the community include Winfield Dunn Parkway (Interstate 269), U.S. Route 64, Collierville-Arlington Road/Airline Road (Tennessee State Route 205), and Seward Road.


After a seven-year court challenge to the right of Memphis to annex, small portions of Eads were annexed into the Memphis City Council Second District in 1990s. Most of Eads is now designated as being in the Memphis reserve, meaning that Memphis can annex it at some point.


Most of Eads is serviced by Shelby County Schools. The private Briarcrest Christian School also has a campus in Eads.


The center of Eads is located at 35°12'09" North, 89°39'02" West.[1]
