Aussie Vinyl’s Pilgrimage to Elvis’ Graceland — Why Every Music Fan Should Go
Elvis Presley’s home Graceland is an example of style and class for a poor Memphis boy making the American dream his own. Aussie Vinyl recounts the experience of visiting the famous mansion on the 40th anniversary of his death.
Purchased by Elvis Presley in 1957, the Neoclassical Colonial-style home is nine miles away from Memphis’ center and was initially intended to keep out the fans and media. According to Graceland, over 600,000 people tour the house, grounds, and museum annually with total visits reaching 20 million in 2016.
