Elvis at Graceland Photos Added to Mobile Apps

March 04, 2013

In March of 1957, Elvis bought the Graceland Mansion for his family for $102,500. The Graceland acreage was once part of a 500-acre farm owned by the Toof family. Graceland's name originates from one of the family's female relatives, Grace. In 1939, Grace's niece, Ruth, and her husband, Dr. Thomas Moore, built the mansion which became well known in the Memphis area. Graceland became the home of many memories for Elvis' family, friends, and fans. The 14-acre property welcomes over 600,000 visitors ever year and has become the place where people travel from around the world to pay tribute to the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Other than his daughter and his music, Graceland was probably Elvis' greatest pride and joy. In honor of our new "To Elvis with Love" video series, we have added five photos of Elvis at Graceland to the Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
