Every King needs a castle, and Elvis Presley certainly had his: Graceland. From the iconic front gates, shaped like sheet music, to the gorgeous Colonial Revival-style columns out front, the Memphis mansion is an American icon, much like the King himself. Elvis Presley called Graceland home for two decades, until his death in 1977. Since 1982 the house has served as a museum with more than 650,000 fans each year visiting from around the world. They go to Graceland to see the famous "Jungle Room," the well-stocked kitchen, and a host of Elvis artifacts and memorabilia. They make the pilgrimage to Graceland to get a little bit closer to the legend that is Elvis Presley.
