Elvis Presley’s Graceland

Elvis Presley  bought Graceland for his family. He let his parents, Gladys and Vernon by the house house with is budget of $100’000 on the criteria of it being a “farmhouse”.  After Gladys died in 1958, it became too much for Presley while his step mother redecorated. Graceland became a place for Presly and his clan. Presley would watch his property on CCTV. Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, inherited the estate in 1993 when she turned 25.[31]

Graceland has a total of 23 rooms and boasts amenities such as a racquetball court, full bar, and TV room. Presley also added a Meditation Garden designed and built by architect Bernard Grenadier.  Presley used to reflect on the problems that arose during his life. It is also where, he, his parents, and grandmother are buried.

On August 6, 2006, President George W. Bush hosted Japanese Prime minister Junichiro Koizumi for a tour of the mansion. Graceland became one of the few places on American Soil other than government land or official retreats to have hosted a joint-visit by a sitting US president and a head of a foreign government.

Graceland was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1991 and designated a National Historic Landmark on March 27, 2006
