Memphis: Graceland

Memphis, Tennessee

Elvis has been dead for 35 years. His home is the second most visited in the United States, after the White House.

Elvis bought Graceland in 1967 for $100,000. It has about 13 acres and is fairly modest in comparison to his private jet.

Elvis ended his life grossly overweight, confused and  focused on spiritualism and Monty Python sketches.

His personal doctor prescribed over 10,000 sedatives and amphetamines in the last ten months of his life which ended in 1977.

Some think Elvis is still alive. He has been sighted in a wheelchair at Graceland, in a Wal Mart in Vegas, and buying a ticket to Argentina under the name John Burrows just two hours after his reported death.

His body was returned to Graceland and reburied after an attempt was made to steal it in 1977.

One thing is sure....Elvis has left the building.

This is a view of the back of Elvis' home in Graceland.


  1. Did Graceland a few years ago, loved it. Elvis wasn't home and I was the only one wandering around his house. He was before my time of course but I did appreciate the tour!! Enjoying your blog.

  2. I loved Graceland...especially the ceiling of the house...sil
