Escorted Rail Tours to Tupelo

Birthplace of The King

The Mississippi city of Tupelo is clearly most famous for being the birthplace of Elvis Presley. There is a museum dedicated to 'The King of rock 'n' roll' that is filled with memorabilia and tributes to the singer; the house where he and his stillborn identical twin Jesse were born on 8th January 1935 is still standing, and is a fascinating place to visit. The two-room house was built by Elvis' father in 1934 and cost $150 to construct - which was very little even at that time. Known as a 'shotgun house' (apparently because a bullet would travel right through it), today the house provides an interesting insight into Presley's humble beginnings, as it has been furnished to look as it would have done at the time of his birth.
