Leighnora Elisabeth Griffin, pictured here in the 1930s, lived at 2118 Madison Avenue from 1919 until her death at age 89. She once turned down an offer price of $500,000 to purchase the home during the mid-70's heyday of Overton Square entertainment district. Her family moved to Memphis from Columbus, GA and bought the house in 1919. She married John Griffin in 1928, and he lived there with her until his death in 1981. After Ms. Griffin's death on November 20, 1991, Paulette's expanded into the house, using the space as private dining.
