    Elvis Presley lived at Graceland for two decades before his death on August 16, 1977, at age 42. His daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, has been the owner of Graceland since his death.

    The house was built in 1939 by Dr. Thomas and Ruth Moore who named it "Graceland" in honour of a family member. The elegant, columned mansion faces west, perched on a hilltop in Whitehaven, a suburb eight miles from downtown Memphis, Tennessee.

    During the 1950s, Graceland was used by the Christian Church. In 1957 Elvis Presley purchased it from the YMCA for just under $102,500. He quickly began remodeling and redecorating, adding a racquetball court, a pink Alabama fieldstone wall, and wrought iron gates shaped like giant guitars. The house grew from 10,266 square feet to 17,552 square feet as Presley added more and more rooms.
