Regarding tourist attractions, you do not want to miss Graceland. Home to the king of rock ‘n’ roll, Elvis Presley. Originally owned by Stephen C. Roof, the owner of the oldest printing press in Memphis. Before Graceland Farms was built, it was named Grace after Toofins oldest daughter. In 1957, Elvis gave his parents $100,000 to search for a “farmhouse” like property. Presley purchased Graceland on March 19, 1957, for the purchase price of $102,500. Adjusted for inflation, the equivalent value of this money today would be worth $1,102,235. Graceland stands as an iconic testament to the life and legacy of Elvis Presley.
