Graceland, Elvis’s house

gracelandElvis Presley is once again on everyone’s lips: his biographical film was released a few months ago and his only daughter, Lisa Marie, has just passed away, so everything related to the singer is current, including his house. Graceland is the name of what was the house of Elvis Presley located in Memphis, Tennessee. The twenty-acre property was purchased by Elvis in 1957 for $102,500 and named after his grandmother, Grace Smith.

Graceland became a museum the year after Elvis’s death in 1977 and today is one of the most visited houses in the United States, receiving an average of 650,000 visits per year and thereby grossing more than 10 million dollars a year. . The property is currently valued at $100 million.

gracelandGraceland is a true place of worship where fans of the singer can visit the places where he lived and enjoyed the last 20 years of his life. There, fans can tour his rooms, see his vintage cars and enter the room where he used to listen to music. In addition to the 8 bedrooms and 15 themed rooms, the central mansion features an abundance of lush gardens. It should be noted that he himself was in charge of part of the decoration, although after his death several things were changed, but his stamp and his taste are still reflected throughout the house.

The garden area consists of a theme park with a wave pool, a lake with a wooden bridge, a waterfall and a small island with a statue of Elvis. The mansion also has a dance floor for visitors, a party room, and a library. Also, the place has a medium-sized theater, a projection room and a museum.

 

There is also a souvenir shop and an automobile exhibition where more than 20 vehicles that the artist himself used are exhibited, as well as his two planes. The property also houses a chapel, a tennis court and a basketball court.

In the Garden of Meditation lie the remains of the singer and his family, where a few days ago they were joined by the remains of Lisa Marie Presley, who died on Thursday, January 12 and was the owner of the house. Graceland now becomes part of the estate of Lisa Marie’s three daughters.

According to the Association of Gold Record Award Winners, Graceland is the number one place to visit among music-related museums and attractions in the world.
