Graceland Becoming A National Historic Landmark

The home of the King of Rock 'n' Roll joined the homes of presidents past and present in becoming a National Historic Landmark Monday March 27th, 2006


Music legend Elvis Presley is having his Memphis home named a US national historic landmark Monday March 27th, 2006. Graceland, a place where the king of Rock 'n' Roll died in 1977, joins the White House, Mount Vernon and Monticello in receiving the country's highest designation for historic properties.

"It would be difficult to tell the story of the 20th century without discussing the many contributions made by this legendary, iconic artist," said Interior Secretary Gale Norton during a ceremony at Presley's famous Memphis mansion. "It didn't take Americans and the rest of the world long to discover Elvis Presley," Norton added "and it is absolutely clear that they will never forget him."
