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

Before moving to town, the singer lived in Tupelo, Mississippi.
He was born in a two-room cabin that is open to visitors to this day.
The house is just part of the grounds of the Mississippi Historic Site, which also has a small museum, events center, and the Assembly of God Church where the Presley family worshipped.
The church was moved there from its original site.
Although Elvis left Tupelo as a young teenager, he returned in 1956 to benefit the town, and again a year later to raise money to build a youth center and park.
Although the area is best known for being 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 home in Memphis on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.
