Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935. He was born in this tiny little white house that they have since converted in to a museum. Many years ago, my grandparents went on a road trip and one of the places they went was to this museum. I remember my Gramma being very excited about visiting it, and seeing the photos they took there and memorabilia they brought back home. She was a HUGE Elvis fan!
When I saw we were going to drive through Tupelo on the way to my husband’s grandfather’s memorial in Tuscaloosa, I asked him if we could stop by and see the house. We got to Tupelo around 9pm Friday night, so we decided to stay at a hotel and then visit to the museum in the morning. It was a fun and quick little visit, we took some photos, took a moment to think of my Gramma, bought a magnet and a coffee mug and then hit the road to Tuscaloosa.
Here are some photos of the house and signs. I asked the receptionist how long Elvis actually lived in the house and it was only until he was like 2 or 3 years old, so I thought it was funny they had this huge museum about it, but still cool!
