This Week In History 1982: Elvis Presley’s Graceland Opens To The Public
In June 1982, just a few months prior to the 5th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, Graceland Mansion, his Memphis home was opened to the public. It is still one of the most visited homes in America with over one-half million people seeing it every year.
I've visited Graceland twice and found it to be worth the trip. One thing that really surprised me was how small, by today's standards, the mansion is. Some of the the decor is hard to explain too, you just have to see it.
One part of the house that's never been open to the public is the upstairs, including Elvis' private master suite. I suppose there are some things Elvis that are still sacred.
If you haven't been to Graceland, you can take a virtual tour until you can visit in person.
