Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA
The Elvis Presley Birthplace is a fabulous historic museum site in Tupelo, Mississippi dedicated to the preservation of the birthplace of American iconic musician Elvis Presley.
The museum site includes the birthplace home of Elvis Presley, a museum, a chapel, and the Assembly of God Church building where the Presley family worshipped. Financially, times were hard on Vernon and Gladys, and they had to move out of the shotgun house when he was only a few years old for lack of payment. Vernon and Gladys worked various jobs while in Tupelo and moved several different times during the thirteen years they resided in Mississippi.
An F5 tornado struck eight miles outside the city on April 5, 1936. The one-year-old Elvis and his mother, Gladys, survived the storm because it did not destroy their house. His father, Vernon, was out of town looking for work at that time.
