Welcome to the City of Memphis, first settled in the 1830's! Memphis is a city with a rich past and an exciting future. Straddling the border of Macomb and St. Clair counties, Memphis is located along state highway M-19, midway between Metro Detroit and the gorgeous Thumb of Michigan. This location offers an excellent balance of proximity to the amenities and employment opportunities of a big city, yet the unique small-town atmosphere in which to raise a family.

Memphis provides its residents and visitors a quality school system, a variety of local businesses offering both goods and services, as well as a number of parks to relax and play. Whether you are passing through or planting roots, Memphis is an incredible community! Check it out!

The Detroit Institute of Arts has installed artwork throughout town just in time for you to take a stroll, enjoy the weather and check them out. The artwork will be on display into the fall.

"On one mystic, magic night,

Jack-o’-lanterns glowing bright,

kids with bags of candy sweet,

roam door to door and street to street,

all dressed up for trick or treat!

Wizards with wands, pirates with hooks,

monsters and clowns with spooky looks,

kings and queens with capes and crowns,

a princess in her royal gown,

witches with warts and fairies with wings,

movies stars with sparkling rings,

vampires with fangs that bite,

ghost that boo all dressed in white.

Imaginations taken flight,

on that one mystic, magic night.

Oh, the fun of Halloween,

be young or old or in between!"

- P. L. Cisco
