Visitor Tips and News About 24 Hour Church of Elvis (Closed)
I walked by the 24-Hour Church of Elvis today, never having heard of it before, between 4th and 5th on Couch Street. I've never seen anything like it. The lights were flashing, so I guess the "church" is open.[MC, 09/21/2011]
The church is back up and running! The owner has gone back to the "roots" of the store - the interactive curiosity window.[Medusa, 08/20/2009]
The Church of Elvis no longer exists, but the women who operated it now sells her items at the Portland Saturday Market. The Portland Saturday Market is is open on Saturday and Sunday (March thru December). The location of her both varies and she does not attend the market every weekend. But I did buy a t-shirt there recently.[Patrick Gottsacker, 10/27/2002]
Unfortunately, Stephanie is now broke and has to close the 24-hour Church of Elvis in Portland, OR. The web site that was at www.churchofelvis.com is gone also.[Nancy Henderson, 02/09/2002]
October 2005: Stephanie advises that her new website (after losing the Domain Name for the old one) is at www.24hourChurchofElvis.com.
I got married at the Church of Elvis! It may not have been legal (although you supposedly can get married for real if you'd like), but it was quite amusing. Listen to the maniacal rantings of Stephanie as she gives you a "tour" of her junk-filled room. That jukebox with the spinning doll heads was creepy! Just make sure you don't walk in late or she'll berate you![Sir, 01/27/2001]
