Elvis's father built the house where he was born. It is really tiny.

[Katharine Chestnut, 07/04/2010]

Mar. 2013: The attraction attributes the construction of the 2-room house to Elvis's father, grandfather and uncle. Hilary W. writes: "Contemporary photos of the house at the time Elvis would have lived there show a row of typical mill houses. These type of houses were (and sometimes still are) quite common in the South. The family was deeply in debt and skipped town in the middle of the night. This was also a very typical occurrence for those who 'owed their soul to the company store' during this period."

Birthplace of Elvis

The Assembly of God Church, where Elvis attended as a young boy, has been moved to the birthplace and restored. A film is shown depicting Elvis' early musical influences.
