Home of Elvis Presley

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Graceland is a large white-columned mansion and 13.8 acre estate in Memphis, Tennessee that was home to Elvis Presley. The site was listed in the National Register of Historic Places and declared a National Historic Landmark on March 27, 2006. Today Graceland Mansion is a museum. Graceland has become one of the most-visited private homes in America with over 600,000 visitors a year. 

Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo Mississippi on January 8, 1935, the son of Vernon and Gladys Presley. He moved to Memphis in 1948. Soon after signing a contract with Sun Records in 1954 he achieved tremendous popularity. His musical and acting career in records, movies, television and concerts made him one of the most successful and outstanding entertainers in the world. He died on August 16, 1977 and is buried here at his Memphis home. Graceland.

Originally, Elvis Presley was buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. A group of men tried to steal Elvis Presley's coffin. The grave sites of Presley's parents, Gladys and Veron Presley, were also at risk. So in October 1977, the family was moved to Graceland.

Like Elvis fans have been doing for well over 4 decades- no trip to Graceland is complete without signing the Graceland wall.
