Nashville to Graceland, part 3

“So hush little baby
Don’t you cry
You know your daddy’s bound to die
But all my trials Lord, will soon be over”
(An American Trilogy – Elvis Presley)

As part of your tour around the Graceland property, you’ll inevitably end up graveside just past the pool. There’s a well-manicured garden surrounding the final resting places of Vernon (father), Gladys (mother), Jessie (brother), and Elvis. This area is a somber, yet perfect way to end the tour. Check out photos below of my family and I passing by.

I also tried to take some photos in a less traditional way, so you’ll see the graves, but also a perspective from a bit farther away, including folks looking at the graves.


Thanks for checking out my Graceland posts. If you want to see more, here’s part 1 and part 2.

Since 2005, I've called Nashville home. I'm the leader of the pack, which includes an 13-year-old beagle and an 11-year-old blue heeler mix. My days include writing, video editing, and other fun activities. Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you enjoy it!
