A Trip To Graceland: Elvis Presley’s Home In Memphis.
A mansion on a 13.8-acre estate in Memphis, Tennessee, United States, it was once owned by singer and actor Elvis Presley.
His daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, has been the owner of Graceland since his death in 1977. It was opened to the public as a museum on June 7, 1982.
It has a total of 23 rooms, including 8 bedrooms and bathrooms. To the right of the entrance hall, through an arched opening, is the living room.
Next to the living room is the music room, which is where all his magical songs were birthed. The grand piano here is historical proof!
As Elvis’ fame grew, the number of fans who would congregate outside his house multiples. His neighbours, most of whom were happy to have a...
...celebrity living nearby, soon came to find the constant gathering of fans a nuisance.
In the mid-1960s, Presley enlarged the house to create a den known as Jungle Room, which features an indoor waterfall of cut field stone.
It also contains a white staircase leading to the second floor of the house with a wal of mirrors.
This floor features Elvis’ bedroom at the southwest corner that connects to his dressing room, and bathroom to the northwest corner.
It also houses his iconic purple Cadillac; possibly one of his coolest cars, the 1956 vehicle will have you shake rattle and rollin’!
Not to forget his iconic pink Cadillac! It set style for the era, was sung about in popular culture, and was copied by others around the world.
An annual procession through the estate and past Elvis’ grave is held on the anniversary of his death.
Known as Elvis Week, it includes a full schedule of speakers & events, including the only Elvis Mass at St. Paul’s Church, a huge highlight for fans.
