William E. Butler, who served as Surgeon-General to Andrew Jackson in New Orleans, owned a race track located on this block. Jackson and his wife, Rachel Donelson Jackson, attended races here in 1825. In 1843 Dr. Butler donated the site for a school for young women of the Mid-South known as the Memphis Conference Female Institute. After eighty years the school was relocated in Jackson as a coeducational institution and was renamed Lambuth College.
