Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • An urban nature center in the heart of metropolitan Memphis, Lichterman is set on 65 acres filled with a lake, meadows, and forest that are home to scores of plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals.
  • Multiple facilities offer customizable configurations. Options include the Learning Center, with decks overlooking the lake; the Orientation Area, boasting 20-foot-tall windows and a massive stone fireplace; and the Special Events Pavilion, featuring an outdoor fireplace, serving kitchen, and picnic tables.
  • Tennessee’s natural beauty is on display to stunning effect, from the blazing reds, yellows, and oranges of the trees in autumn, to the lush greens of the lily pads and ferns in the summer, to the delicate periwinkles and violets of the wildflowers in spring.
