Visitor Tips and News About Graceland Too (Closed)
The late Paul McLeod's attorney, Phillip Knecht, issued a press release today announcing a "Memorial and Celebration of the Life of Paul MacLeod, which will be held in Holly Springs, Mississippi, on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, during Elvis Presley Week. Graceland Too will be collecting donations at this event to pay for Paul MacLeod's funeral and burial expenses, and the expenses and costs of his Estate."
Graceland Too will open that day for guided tours for the customary $5/person. Be advised: "Lifetime memberships, for this one time only, will not be honored, as all proceeds from this tour will go towards Paul's funeral, burial and estate expenses." There will be a midnight candle vigil.
In the meantime, fans are stopping at the closed property to show their support of Elvis' No. 1 Fan. "Graceland Too is honored and touched by the outpouring of sympathy for Paul, and the growing collection of soda cans at the doorsteps of Graceland Too. We encourage Paul's fans to continue to stop by and leave these cans in his memory.
"Further details, including exact times and locations, will be posted in the coming days and weeks on the personal Facebook page of Phillip Kyle Knecht, the Facebook page of the Knecht Law Firm, the unofficial Paul MacLeod Facebook page, and with the Holly Springs City Hall, office of Mayor Kelvin Buck, and the Holly Springs Tourism and Recreation Bureau."[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 07/20/2014]
Well well well. We were in awe of Graceland Too. Keep up with him, you might miss something. Quite busy, but a must for Elvis fans. Town is pretty cool. House getting painted again.[James the Route Pro, 07/06/2013]
Glad we stopped. Please read the full story on RA. We knew what to expect. Paul was on his front porch waiting for visitors. He took us in the front door and locked it behind him. Would have been creepy if we didn't read the background story.
He likes to keep attention on him at all times and likes to "tap" your shoulder if his high pitched whistle didn't get you the first time. The house is now under "renovation" inside and out. There is a lot of chain link fence inside protecting his items. The house on the outside is now brown and blue and white.
Fascinating character and glad we met him.[Tansy Ridings, 06/18/2013]
