Collierville Overview

The Town of Collierville in the southeastern corner of Shelby County is a town on the rise.

Collierville enjoys the pastoral fields and soft rises of the eastern part of the county. The town borders Germantown to the west and Byhalia and Olive Branch, Mississippi to the south.

Neighborhoods on estate-size lots are near enough to forests and creeks where deer, large waterfowl, and rabbits makes their home, but upscale shopping, dining, and other lifestyle amenities are just minutes away in gracious locales such as the 800,000 square foot retail center known as the Avenue at Carriage Crossing.

The gently sloping landscape and wide expanses of fields make Collierville the perfect place to take in 18 holes at one of five popular golf courses, relax in one of 11 neighborhood parks, or enjoy a game at any of 30 athletic fields.

Originally known as Oak Grove, the town was renamed Collierville in 1835 after a Jesse R. Collier, on whose land much of the town was built. In 1863, the Battle of Collierville, a series of four skirmishes aimed at destroying the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, took place on what is now the historic town square. Parts of the original train station remain to this day.

Now Collierville is now a leader growth statewide attracting over 45,000 residents (up from 31,000 in 2000) and business like the world headquarters of Fedex. Money Magazine named Collierville one of the best eastern cities to live in and Relocate-America named the town one its Top 100 Places to Live.

Collierville connects easily with Memphis and other suburbs by I-385 Bill Morris Parkway, one of the largest new highway projects in Shelby County in the last 30 years. The Canada-to-Mexico I-69 will eventually connect with I-385. Highway 72 and the Poplar Avenue transit corridor meet just a few miles from the town’s center.

If success is on your horizon, then a home in Collierville could be a great place to live, work, and grow.
