08-Apr-2011 -- This is one of those relatively rare confluence points that lies within a major city - in this case, Memphis. More specifically, it lies within a residential suburb at the southern end of the city. It reminded me a lot of [42,88] and [43,88] (in the suburbs of Chicago and Milwaukee, respectively) that I visited a few years ago.

"Graceland" - one of Memphis's major tourist attractions - is just 3.6 miles away (as the crow flies), so informally, you might think of this confluence point as being the "Graceland Confluence".

By driving, I could get within 60 feet of the confluence point, which appears to lie within one of the houses. Confluence points like this make me a little nervous about taking such detailed photos of the front of private homes (even though I stay on the public street). Four quick photos - one in each compass direction - and I was out of there.
