While Elvis Presley became the biggest name in music history and achieved worldwide fame and fortune, his roots in the Northeast Mississippi city of Tupelo were humble. Guests will experience the rural setting of Elvis' upbringing and see where it all began in the two-room house where the King of Rock 'n Roll was born on January 8, 1935, the church he attended in his youth and see artifacts from his modest beginnings.
Designated as an historic landmark by the State of Mississippi, Elvis' birthplace, a house built by his father for $180, draws visitors from all over the world and is part of the 15-acre Elvis Presley Park. In addition to the Birthplace, you'll also tour the Elvis Presley Museum, Elvis' childhood church, the "Walk of Life" trail tracing Elvis' career and personal life and see the "Elvis at 13" statue, the Elvis Story Wall and Fountain of Life, representing the 13 years that Elvis lived in Tupelo before moving to Memphis with his family.
At the Tupelo Visitors Center experience interactive exhibits that highlight Tupelo's top attractions, a collective timeline of the city's rich history, and displays focused on Elvis' childhood in Tupelo as told like never before.
