High Point Terrace is a neighborhood located in the heart of the city of Memphis, Tennessee.
High Point Terrace is generally geographically defined as being located north of Walnut Grove Road, east of North Highland Street, south of Summer Avenue and west of North Graham Street. Sam Cooper Boulevard, a local freeway, cuts the northern section off from the rest of the neighborhood.
The main thoroughfare extending North from Walnut Grove across Sam Cooper Blvd. to Summer Ave.,(also called High Point Terrace) is several blocks long and contains a small shopping area with a grocery store, family dental office, dry cleaners, pizza shop, barber shop, Deli/Cafe, pub and a few other businesses. Property values in High Point Terrace are some of the highest per square foot in the city of Memphis. There are approximately 4,000 residents and 1,800 homes (most of which are examples of early post-World War II minimal traditional design) in the area.
Development in this part of Memphis began around 1900, though very little was developed. The next major development during the early 1940s, but World War II halted development for several years. The whole neighborhood was completed by 1953. The construction of Sam Cooper Boulevard (which was originally to be I-40) destroyed many of the original homes built at the turn of the century.
