Mallory Heights is one of the many well-known suburban neighborhoods in South Memphis, Tennessee. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out because of its concentration of one-time residential real estate: from 1940 to 1969, generally considered to be older, well-established homes. This was a busy time for home construction in America. After the end of the Second World War, when GIs came home, they bought new homes on the outskirts of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945-1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in that era. But what's so interesting about the Mallory neighborhood is that 80.0 percent of the homes were built in this era. So when you walk around or drive through the streets, this neighborhood has a look and feel that the era of American life is a very important part of Americana. The zip code of the neighborhood is 38109. The main roads are Florida Street, and Shelby Street.
