PRISCILLA SAVED ELVIS' GRACELAND
Elvis Presley might have left the world, but his family is keeping his legacy alive. His Graceland estate is one of the music's most famous landmarks visited by thousands of fans each year.
After Elvis' death, his estate was divided amongst three beneficiaries: his grandmom Minnie Mae Presley, father Vernon, and his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
After the death of Minnie Mae and Vernon, Lisa was the only remaining heir to Graceland and her mother Priscilla served as the executor of the state until her daughter's 25th birthday.
With taxes and maintenance costs amounting to about half a million dollars per year, Pricilla was under pressure to sell the property. When everything seemed to be in chaos, she came up with a brilliant idea to save Elvis' legacy.
FANS COULD FINALLY TAKE A PEEK INSIDE THE ICONIC ESTATE
Pricila decided to open Graceland to Elvis' fans as a tourist destination in 1981. She hired Jack Soden for the planning. In June of 1982, the property opened for the public.
Today, the estate is one of the most visited houses in the United States with over 6,50,000 fans visiting every year.
The mansion has a shooting range, eight bedrooms and bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, and a music room.
