About Us Morgan Bridge

The Morgan Bridge as seen from inside Elmwood.

The Morgan Bridge that connects East Dudley Street to the grounds was designed by City of Memphis Engineer and Elmwood resident J. A. Omberg. A span bridge design was used to ensure the clearance of the under-passing trains and to give visitors a breath-taking panoramic view when they enter the grounds.

The Morgan Bridge was entered on the National Register of Historic Places as project number #02000233 on May 22, 1978.

The Morgan Bridge was endowed through a gift to Elmwood by Musette and Allen B. Morgan, Jr.
