Orange Mound, developed as Negro subdivision at the turn of the century, was formerly a 5000 acre plantation owned by John George Deaderick. Bounded by the Southern Railway on the north, Airways on the west, Park on the South, and Goodwyn on the east. Memphis' oldest and best known African-American community received its name from the rows of mock orange shrubs in the side yard of the Deadericks home.
