McGinnis Park Established 1998

McGinnis Park is dedicated to the memory of Wiley Washington McGinnis (1875-1959), who first landscaped Collierville Square. The park and streets of the 443-acre Schilling Farms development are named for individuals who contributed to the rich heritage of Collierville: Hoyahka, the Indian who received the land that is now Schilling Farms as part of the Chickasaw Land Treaty; James Colbert, Chickasaw Indian chief; Josiah Deloach (1807-1880), a major landholder; the Reverend William McFerrin (1809-1886), Methodist minister; and Clarene Pinkston Russell, Collierville historian.
