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. The Cutrers and their home inspired character names and settings in several works by celebrated playwright Tennessee Williams. The J.W. Cutrer House was designated a Mississippi Landmark in 2005.
