Not much needs to be said except if you are an Elvis fan then this is a must see to understand how it all started for Elvis. You will get a keen understanding of why he cared so much for his mother and for his generosity toward others in giving. The complex consists of a main building with gift shop... More

I had no special thoughts before I went to EP birthplace. But when I came there I saw this little house where he was born - the car (Plymouth - same type car but not the actually one) which his father drove from Tupelo to Memphis. And finally seen the movi in the museum telling about the young Elvis from... More

It is so difficult to imagine that a Family lived in this type of home. Mrs. Presley gave birth to her sons in the very bed that you see in the house. Imagine no bathroom. Not much of a kitchen either. Basically a one room house with a dividing wall. Made me appreciate my home.

Being an Elvis fan and being as we were going through Tupelo, we had to stop. Glad we did. Lot of great Elvis history here. The museum was very interesting. The shotgun house is very representative of the way life was. Enjoyed this stop.

Visiting Tupelo will give you and appreciation of the extremely humble beginnings and poverty from which Elvis rose to become, in my opinion, the greatest entertainer. his childhood Church has been moved to the property and a recreation of a church service is very well done. However since I was here the last time they have added a very cheesey... More

Elvis fan or not, if you are in the neighbourhood drop by. Else, it's a 2 hour bus/car trip from Memphis (Graceland). For about $17, you can enter the two room home where Elvis was born and compare it to Graceland, where he died. Two different extremes. The small chapel was moved to the location recently and restored (but the... More
