My little sis and I gifted a trip to Graceland to my Elvis-adoring Mom for Christmas/Mother’s Day. Of course, the trip had to start with a short drive to Tupelo to see where it all began… And it was well worth it! Here are just a few photos from our visit.
The 2-room shotgun house where Elvis was born.
The church that Elvis attended as a child. It was moved from it’s original location to the birthplace park.
A statue of Elvis at 13, when he and his family moved to Memphis.
My mom with a replication of the Presley car from the time they moved from Tupelo to Memphis. Isn’t she cute?
And Tupelo Hardware, where Gladys bought Elvis his first guitar. The interior remains the same as it did then, original floors, walls, and displays. I was so awestruck with the store that I neglected to take photos once inside. What can I say? I get star struck, too! Visit their website for more photos.
