Cordova Community Center Investigation

Here is a link to their website –

My experience was that there are child and adult spirits haunting the old school.  I did not find anything evil that the staff  should be worried about.  Mostly playful spirits.  Most were in the basement ( the old library and cafeteria area ).  If you here something different than I did with the EVP’s feel free to comment below!  If you live in the area you should stop by and see the old school and museum!  Very interesting place.  We appreciate and want to thank the Staff at The Cordova Community Center for their cooperation.

The Cordova Community Center is a hidden treasure for history lovers. Mrs. Darlene Sawyer has organized the beautiful museum into an invaluable resource for historic information that you can’t find anywhere else, and the staff has made it a great community space for events, meetings, and lessons. It’s no wonder that some playful little spirits have stayed there through the years! I enjoyed the wonderful collection in the museum, as well as the giggling voices and playful energy from it’s era as the schoolhouse. I can’t wait to return!

History  In October 1985 nine citizens of Cordova, in the name of the community, formed a not-for profit corporation which purchased from the Shelby County Board of Education the Cordova School property, to be used as a community center. The price for the school building with gymnasium on eight acres including ball fields was $150,000.

Teachers and students who fondly remembered their old school joined with current residents to save the 1913 landmark. Neighbors and friends organized an on-going series of fund-raising events and generous, hard working citizens began the slow process of renovation.

Now that the mortgage is paid off, more help is needed to continue the restoration and repairs, including the heating and cooling systems throughout the buildings. Plans are continuously being developed for a full calendar of annual events.

Your participation in the center’s programs and your contribution of time, talent and financial support are heartily welcomed.

The “old school” was and is the heart of Cordova. The 1913 building was recently placed on the Tennessee and National Register of Historic Places.
