Clark Tower, a landmark in White Station.

White Station, Tennessee was an unincorporated area to the east of Memphis in Shelby County, Tennessee. White Station was annexed into the city by the 1950s and became one of the main neighborhoods of East Memphis. The area is now known for White Station High School.

White Station was located near the former site of White's Station (namesake also of Whitehaven), an historic railway station built in 1842 on the LaGrange and Memphis Railroad (later part of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad), now part of the Norfolk Southern Railway. Until the 1950s White Station was near the eastern boundary of Memphis.[1]
