February 28, 2013

"To Elvis With Love: Writings on the Wall" is a new video series produced by the staff at Graceland to honor our fans who continue to visit each year and pay tribute to the king. Elvis fans can now check out the new video montage (above) featuring several of the messages fans have left for Elvis on the wall outside of Graceland in Memphis, TN.

In April of 1957 after Elvis purchased the Graceland property and was filming "Jailhouse Rock," the famous Graceland wall was installed with Alabama field stone and was one of the first additions to the grounds along with the famous iron gates. The wall outside of Graceland has given fans a sense of warmth, welcome and camaraderie. Over the years, fans have turned the wall into a special place where they write personal messages to Elvis. The Graceland wall has been signed by millions of people, including celebrities, politicians and fans from around the world.
