Spence Manor

11 Music Square East

The Spence Manor Motor Hotel was built in a Mid-Century Modern Brutalist style to serve the stars (especially Elvis) who came to town to record on Music Row. The guitar-shaped pool on the property was built by Webb Pierce to accommodate his fans after his neighbors complained about fans coming to Pierce’s house to see his personal guitar-shaped pool.

The now-residential property is mired in controversy as residents fight over short-term rentals in the building and whether it should be torn down to make way for something taller.
