The Presley family gravestone at GracelandPhoto by Flickr member Kristin Brenemen / CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
Originally, Elvis Presley was buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. A group of men tried to steal Elvis Presley's coffin. The grave sites of Presley's parents, Gladys and Veron Presley, were also at risk. So in October 1977, the family was moved to Graceland. They were re-interred in the Meditation Garden, which Elvis Presley created during the mid-1960s as a place for quiet reflection. He is buried beneath an angel sculpture.
Today Graceland Mansion is a museum. It is reportedly the second-most visited home in America behind the White House.
