The entrance room inside the trophy building at the Graceland mansion is getting a new look! The room now features an interactive timeline celebrating 1956, the year Elvis Presley catapulted from anonymity to superstardom. The new display will be unveiled on January 8, 2011 during the Elvis Presley Birthday Celebration!
Remarkably, 55 years ago, Elvis enjoyed his first RCA single and national hit, "Heartbreak Hotel," his first album, "Elvis Presley," his first movie, "Love Me Tender," and his first television appearances on The Dorsey Brothers' "Stage Show," "The Milton Berle Show," "The Steve Allen Show" and "Ed Sullivan." The new timeline highlights each of these achievements through exclusive photos, video clips, and other memorabilia!
Elvis’ trophy building also houses an amazing collection of his gold and platinum records, as well as items from his movies, his charitable endeavors and more.
