Libertyland on East Parkway at Tiger Lane was declared a historical site by the Shelby County Historical Commission. Honoring the nation's Bicentennial, the Libertyland theme park opened near this spot on the Mid South Fair grounds on July 4th, 1976. History buffs reveled in Colonial Land, Frontier Land, and Turn of the Century Land, and children of all ages enjoyed live shows, games and the dozen plus "mild to wild" rides. The park's signature features were the Dentzel Grand Carousel and Zippin Pippin roller coaster, both over 50 years old at the time of opening and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other popular features were the Revolution coaster and the Old Hickory flume ride, the children's playground on Tom Sawyer's Island, the dolphin show and the Memphis Liberty Bell. Libertyland was more than just a park. It provided first time jobs for hundreds of teens and pleasant memories for millions of visitors. It closed in 2005.

Essential oils are perfect, whether it’s for a situational or chronic issue. So much of what we are taking internally and inhaling are leading to what I refer to as estrogen pollution in our bodies. If we can embrace more natural, non-toxic, synthetic-free remedies, we lower our toxic threshold and the resulting hormonal imbalances that occur from breaching that threshold. — Marie Delcioppo, health coach and New York Times featured Raw Foods Chef.
