Elvis Presley’s father, Vernon, built this small home in 1934. Here Elvis and his twin brother, who died in childbirth, were born in 1935. The Presleys were forced to move because of hard times. They left Tupelo for Memphis in 1948. The house’s basic structure is intact, and it is located on its original site. Furnishings are period reproductions. A museum and memorial chapel are nearby.
