Shelby County Municipalities over the Years

Click here to view a series of maps that demonstrate corporate boundaries of Shelby County municipalities over the years. 
  • 1897.  This map shows the recently incorporated towns of Idlewild, Madison Heights, Lenox and Binghampton.  These towns were eventually annexed into the City of Memphis. 
  • 1960.  This map predates the rather extensive annexations made by the City of Memphis in the 1960s, as well as any significant expansions of the suburban jurisdictions that were also to occur in the following decades.  
  • 1990.  In an effort to prevent a merger of the Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools that had been proposed in 1990, some pursued the formation of a new county to be named Neshoba.  This county was never legally formed.
  • 1995.  The Cities of Memphis, Millington, Bartlett, Arlington, Germantown and Collierville had annexation agreements with one another prior to the passage of Public Chapter 1101 (see below).  This map reflects the scenario under which all of the reserve areas were annexed to their respective municipalities.
  • 1997.  This map reflects the incorporation of all municipalities that were in some various stage of incorporating under the newly enacted "Tiny Town Law" of 1997 (Public Chapter 98).
  • 2015.  The Tiny Town Law was ruled unconstitutional by the Tennessee Supreme Court, so the municipalities reflected in the 1997 map were not legally formed.  Instead, the Tennessee General Assembly passed Chapter 1101 in 2000.  In 2014, the General Assembly changed the annexation laws of the state requiring annexation by referendum.  This map reflects the jurisdictional boundaries of the Shelby County municipalities after these two events.
