Cordova, Tennessee


Cordova is a village in the state of Tennessee. Because the village has not been incorporated and much of its original area has been annexed by Memphis City, the boundaries are not exact. Still, it can be said that the village of Cordova comprises the area bordered by Pisgah Road on the east side, Whitten Road on the west side, Interstate 40 on the north side, and Wolf River on the south side. Any area that is within these boundaries is considered part of Cordova. Founded in 1835 as Allentown, the place soon changed name several times. The final name as Cordova was picked in 1900.

Fast Facts

  • The village of Cordova is set in Shelby County, Tennessee.
  • The exact size of the area is not well defined as many parts are already annexed by the City of Memphis.
  • The village began as a farming community established in 1835.
  • The original name of Cordova is Allentown which the residents replaced with Marysville. Then, it was named as Dexter but that caused confusion because of a town with the same name set along the same railroad line that courses through this town. Thus, the place renamed itself as Cordova.
  • Today, the place is a fast-growing area, with several commercial and retail centers.
  • Still, the city does not forget its past, choosing to keep the historic downtown intact and annual fairs and celebrations still being celebrated every year.
