MLGW preserves house near service yard

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.
