Occasionally we’re asked if Elvis is buried at Elmwood, but as true fans of Elvis know, he was once buried at another historic cemetery, Forest Hill, in Midtown Memphis, in a mausoleum. He was later moved to Graceland, where he and his family rest today. But that doesn’t mean that Elmwood isn’t connected to the King of rock ‘n’ roll! We’ve put together this guide of Elvis Connections so that you can learn some history that’s not always shared. This booklet can be purchased for $15.
