In 1948, Elvis and his parents moved from Tupelo, MS to Memphis in search of a better life. They lived in this low-income housing project until 1952, where they paid $35 per month in rent. Elvis would practice in the basement laundry room and play music for residents in the communal courtyard. For the full Elvis experience, visitors can now stay overnight in “The Elvis Suite,” the Presley’s former home.
