"Union Av Methodist ... 2117 Union at Cooper
Built in 1914 in the Classical Revival Style. The architect was John Glaisford. Although on the National Register of Historic Places, this Memphis Landmark was no longer in use as a church. It was sold in 2011 to CVS Pharmacy with the intention of demolishing it to build a pharmacy on the corner. After losing a legal battle in mid 2011, the building was demolished."
