Priscilla Presley opened Graceland to the public on June 7, 1982. The estate, formerly owned by Elvis Presley, sits on 13.8 acres in Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis lived there for 20 years until his death in 1977. And over those two decades, he added his distinct personal touch.

It is the second most visited house in America, second only to the White House. The site was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006. Take a virtual tour through the King's palace with some photos we took on a recent trip.
