Meet the Memphis Guides

Anna Lee Burkle

Anna Lee is one of our most-requested guides. She is a descendant of the Burkle Family who lived at the Burkle Estate (now Slavehaven) and started the famous Burkle’s Bakery that served Memphis families for many years. She is passionate about St. Jude Hospital and be sure to ask her about a patient story involving a guest on a recent tour where they met each other for the first time and had a wonderfully happy reunion!.
Nell Rodgers
Nell Rodgers
Nell has been a tour guide for over 20 years. She is a “genteel Southern lady with a distinctive southern drawl” and can tell you all about the rich agricultural history of our area. Nell is related to Ellen Davies Rodgers whose family settled in Shelby County in the early 19th century with the help of the Native Americans. The Davies two-story log home, one of the oldest fully-furnished houses in the county, is still a popular historical site on the outskirts of Memphis.
Jane Hester
Jane Hester
If you’re an Elvis fan, Jane’s the guide for you. Be sure to ask her about her personal “Elvis sightings”!  Interestingly, she danced behind Eddie Fisher when he was the headliner at the Memphis Cotton Carnival while Elvis, who was still a hometown boy at the time, drew the crowds with his appearance at the city auditorium. Jane has spent her entire life in Memphis and remembers how exciting those early concerts were!! She loves her hometown and you’ll love it too after seeing it through Jane’s eyes.
