View Full Version : 698 Saffarans

When the Presleys lost their low-income housing, they moved into a rooming house at 698 Saffarans where they stayed for the next few months. Today that house is gone and there is an empty lot where it once stood.

Thank you for showing the place where Elvis once lived. Too bad it's no longer there.

Interesting posts, thnx:cool:
The Presleys lived at this address from January 7 until April 1953. They had been evicted from Lauderdale Courts on the basis income - for making too much mony.
The Saffarans Street location was a step down in quality from Lauderdale Courts. In sprite of their higher income, they were unable to rent a suitable apartment without a federal subsidy. Within four month, however, the Presleys would move back to the Lauderdale Courts neighborhood.
The building where the family lived no longer exist, but nearly buildins reflect the style of 698 Saffarans Street, and you can still get a sense of the low-income character of the neighborhood.
