Visited the grounds of Presley Center. Wanted to see the recently placed statues at the top of the hill behind the building. Nice hike to get there and wonderful statue and plaques at the summit area. Highly Recommended.

Lovely area where you can tour Elvis' childhood home, see the church he attended, and much more. The memorial chapel is very touching, don't miss it. The entire area is well kept and a must if you are an Elvis fan.

This was actually "donated by Elvis Presley" he made generous contributions of giving proceeds of concerts to the city of Tupelo so they could purchase his homestead. He wanted the land to be made for the children to have a place to go since as a child he did not have such a place. Now it is made into a... More

Lots of interesting information on the King! Love the church and the presentation on his early church life. House was eye opening with the size and feel for his humble beginnings. If you are in the area it is a must see. Beautiful gardens and chapel.

Great experience, located next to the birth place of Elvis. You can tell Elvis was very spiritual and family was very important to him. They were still remodeling and more construction was planned.
