Elvis Presley lived in Tennessee before he passed in 1977, in a mansion which is now open to the public as a museum. Graceland is the mansion Elvis resided in, situated on a 13.8 acre estate in Memphis. The home was inherited by Elvis’ daughter, Lisa, after his death.
Graceland is located at 3764 Elvis Presley Boulevard in the Whitehaven neighbourhood.
It is situated around 10 miles south of central Memphis and less than four miles north of the Mississippi border.
Whitehaven is a residential area primarily known for Elvis’ home.
The estate includes Graceland Mansion, museums displaying the singer’s cars and clothes as well as a plaza with souvenir shops.

Before moving to the city, the singer lived in Tupelo, Mississippi.
He was born in a two-room shack which is open for visitors to this day.
The house is only part of the grounds at the Mississippi Historic Site, which also has a small museum, events centre and the Assembly of God Church where the Presley family worshipped.
The church was moved there from its original site.
Even though Elvis left Tupelo as a young teen, he returned in 1956 to perform a benefit for the city, and again a year later to raise money to build a youth Center and park.
While the area may be most famous as the birthplace of Elvis, it also has a number of other attractions.
This includes the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo and the Natchez Trace Parkway.
The rock and roll singer died at his Memphis home on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.
