    The James Lee House

    History fans will adore this mid-19th-century mansion along the Mississippi River in Memphis, as it’s a nod to Memphis’s Victorian era with its marble mantels, plaster ceiling medallions, shaped moldings and elegant decor. Originally built as a two-story farmhouse in 1848, the house got its tower and third floor in 1853, later became the Memphis College of Arts, and then lay vacant for decades from 1959 when the college moved. After a renovation, it reopened in 2014 as a boutique bed and breakfast. Don’t miss details such as the original clawfoot tub, antique sconces and pedestal sinks.
