Tupelo, Mississippi

Elvis' story begins in a town called Tupelo. Born January 8, 1935, in a two-room shotgun shack, Elvis Presley spent his first 13 formative years in Tupelo before heading to Memphis with a guitar and a dream. Visitors to Tupelo can still be inspired by the southern town that molded Elvis by visiting places he frequented while here and others that pay homage to his memory still today.
