Why the Junior League of Memphis Community Resource Center (CRC)? 

For decades, the Junior League of Memphis has been opening its doors to the community. This historic building offers a unique canvas for your special event. Whether it is a wedding, luncheon or corporate party, the CRC has both indoor and outdoor space available.

The CRC’s rich history

The building was constructed from 1919-1921, as a home for Mr. C. R. Boyce, a successful Memphis cotton buyer. The architectural firm of Walk C. Jones, Sr. and Max Furbringer designed the residence, which is described as Memphis’ finest example of Italian-Mediterranean residential architecture.

The simplified stucco structure is situated on beautifully sculpted lawns and surrounded by stately oaks and gracious gardens that are accentuated by two gazebos and a large fountain. Inside, a grand hallway traverses the first floor, rising to a large landing accentuated with a Palladian window.

The interior beauty includes a marvelous mixture of form and detail in various cornices, moldings and trim. The home was a residence until 1979, when it was renovated as offices for a local company. In 1991, the Junior League of Memphis purchased the property, which is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
