Burke's Book Store (Memphis, Tennessee)
At 142 years old, Burke’s Book Store is truly a Memphis landmark. Founded in 1875, the shop remained a family business for three generations before its current owners, Cheryl and Corey Mesler, took over the business. In addition to a collection of new books, the store has bought and sold antiquarian and used books since 1950, making it a haven for history lovers. Countless reading nooks give the store a cozy feel, and a dog-friendly policy makes it easy for you to visit with your four-legged friend!
