  • Believe it or not, but these are the project where I grew up, and I survive! But it also help shape me to the person I am today! Now they city has redone done them to make them appear more up to date, but as a child growing up there and at times having to fight to survive, I saw it as an ugly place, even years after we moved away, it wasn't by my choosing to live there , I was just a child, and that was life at the time.... and even tho it's all changed it will always be a reminder of where I grew up! I knew at an early age that there was a better life outside the projects,! and even now when I happen to drive by there is seems like a life time a go, it also is a reminded me that life goes on, things and people changes, but Memories last a life time....

  • My Name is Jerry Jones after being born may 10th 1961 went from local hospital to 644 H Somerville
    and have two brothers and sisters. It was a horrible place to grow up. Saw more there in my 1st 15 years of man's hatred to toward man than most people see in there entire life. Lived there until 1976 and use to have nightmares about the place. Thank God it was tore down. It was probably ok when Kenneth Stiverson was there but not now. For anyone that knew me please feel free to email me at firstjerryjones@yahoo.com would love to hear from you God Bless.

  • Lamar Terrace was home to me and my family from 1949, until 1951. My father had been burned in an accident just after WW2, and was confined to a veterans' hospital for those years. The Terrace provided a place for us to survive for those difficult years and made a lasting impression on my young memory. It has been a very long time since I have lived in Memphis, but I still recall those childhood days, like they were yesterday. The city once closed the childrens' spray pool, because of the polio scare. I recall that one of my Bruce School classmates, named Molly, contracted the disease and was taken from school. She had also resided in Lamar Terrace. A few other neighbors maintained contact with my family over the years and went on to be successful citizens as politicians, artists, educators, and public servants throughout the United States. So many years have passed, and I suppose Lamar Terrace had to go the way of many other things in our pasts. Its time had simply come and gone...... Soon, as we too pass-on, even the memories of Lamar Terrace will fade and disappear. We call this experience progress.
