Placed in honor of Elvis Presley, Tupelo’s most famous native son, this
larger than life statue was placed to commemorate the 35th anniversary of
Elvis’ death in August 2012. It faces east toward his birthplace with
Tupelo City Hall over his left shoulder and the Tupelo Hardware (where
Gladys bought Elvis’ first guitar) over his right shoulder.
