Inscription.  Built in 1916, this Italian style villa was designed by Memphis architect Bayard Cairnes and was the home of local attorney J.W. Cutrer and his wife Blanche Clark Cutrer, daughter of Clarksdale founder John Clark. Named Belvoir by the Cutrer family, it is known locally as the Cutrer Mansion.
