  • Elvis, baby. History. A must-see
  • Memorabilia was fantastic. Campus was arranged thoughtfully. They were fixing the presentation at the chapel, and we were lucky enough to hear stories about Elvis from Roy Turner. He had collaborated on the book Elvis and Gladys doing research and getting interviews set up for the author. It was an extra side tour we wouldn't have had if they weren't working on the chapel portion of the tour. We did the entire tour house, museum and chapel. Well worth it. So interesting!!
