MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

MLGW said it will be preserving a part of Memphis history as it expands its maintenance area near Jackson and Hollywood. 

The utility recently purchased a property on Meagher Street, which is known as the Joe C. Warren House. 

Warren is credited with coining the phrase "I am a Man" during the Sanitation Workers Strike. 

MLGW said it will be repairing the home to serve as a gateway to their service center around the corner.
