Gossett Mazda Hyundai Mitsubishi is proud to serve Cordova, a city that just might be, in our humble opinion here at Gossett, the most beautiful stretch of land in the whole state of Tennessee. Although we’re located in Memphis, we’re happy to help customers from all over the Greater Memphis area. Keep reading to learn all about the great city of Cordova, including history and popular attractions!
Cordova was first settled way back in 1835 with fewer than a dozen farms. As a little farming village west of Memphis, it became renowned in the area for its beautiful and fresh flower. And so our town’s motto, which Cordova’s residents still proudly say today, was born: Farms, Flowers and Fellowship.
Since 1835, the city has gone through quite a few names—from Allentown to Dexter—before finally settling on Cordova in 1900. Today, Cordova is slightly bigger than it was when it began with those dozen or so farms back in 1835, but the community retains that small-town feeling of openness and welcoming to all. You are sure to see a lot of smiling faces and helping hands around the city!
There are plenty of ways you can spend a day in or near Cordova. Connect with nature at the 4,500-acre Shelby Farms Park nearby, which is one of the largest urban parks in the United States. There are also plenty of restaurants at which you can satisfy your hunger, such as Corky’s Bar-b-q, Huey’s and Kabob International.
Every summer, our downtown hosts a delightful crafts fair and our springs play host to a number of markets and festivals. And of course, you can’t miss the Midsouth Food Truck Fest in May.
