    1. It is on the National Registry Of Historic Places

    2. Graceland was designated a National Landmark last year.

    Under federal rulings regarding these designations, there cannot be and will not be any alterations done to the mansion itself nor the surroundings around it. Now, outside of the mansion (beyond the gates) may be a different story but Graceland itself cannot be touched at all.
    Thanks Tony...sounds like you are on top of this. I am curious though...you stated that there cannot be and will not be any alterations done to the mansion itself nor the surroundings around it, yet the info on the revamping of Graceland states that the mansion itself will be resturned to it's orginal state...such as the raquetball court, ect. So how does that fit in with this? If there are proposed changes, which by the way Sillerman supposedly is spear-heading, how can this be right? Just curious...and am thinking that maybe you can shed some light on the subject for us. Thanks!

    Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..

    EPE altered the mansion following Elvis's death.

    I certainly don't think that restoring it to it's original state is exactly changing it.....rather it is restoring it to the way it should be.

    The changes that they are assuring will not be made, to me are the opening of the upstairs....as we all know the mansion would have to be altered for fire and safety reasons for such a change. As well as adding anything on the property grounds etc...

    Also, I could be wrong but it is my understanding that what he purchased was in fact a 99 year lease to Elvis's name image and likeness. After that period they can either renew or it will return to the Presley family. Presumabaly if Riley or Ben are still alive or either of there childen should Lisa not have any more kids which looks likely.

    He's not going to be moved. It's a crazy suggestion and even crazier to consider it may become reality.

    The city is in bed with Sillerman for the rejuvenatiuon of the EP Blvd area, this guy is talking through his ***.

    Why can't they just leave him alone in peace. Haven't they have enough of their ridiculous ideas? People will never really stop to gain attention for their vested interest.
    They will always pick on a subject like ELVIS to get that public attention negative or otherwise for the purpose of grandstanding for nothing. I hope this plan never materialized.
    This is a blatant disrespect to ELVIS memory.
