I loved seeing all the interesting artifacts at Graceland and the personal photographs of Elvis’s family. If you are an Elvis fan definitely have to go. The part of Graceland that was disappointing was that it was almost like a DisneyLand. Very commercial and very marketed. Viewing all the records, awards, clothing and family’s home was enjoyable. Here are a few photos to give you a idea. Picture of Elvis, his mother Gladys and father Verne. Elvis’s mother was 46 when she died and Elvis was 42. The following room used to display a lot of the awards and artifacts was a indoor racquetball court behind the home.
The family is buried at Graceland. Elvis had a twin by the name of Jesse born and died the day of birth. His headstone along with Elvis, his mother Gladys, his father Verne and his grandmother Minnie Mae. It turns out that Elvis’s grandmother lived longer then all of them. She was 89 and died in 1980.
