Combining The Past

With The Future​

The foundation of 460 S. Highland St was laid over 60 years ago. As the historic first branch of Memphis' public library system, the building is rooted in a tradition of bringing community and knowledge together to foster new ideas in the shadow of a premier higher education institution.


In early 2018, a new chapter for the University District began here. The UMRF Research Park was founded to preserve community spirit, amplify opportunity and establish a center of creative empowerment and emerging innovation.
