    Priscilla may have made mistakes, like us all, but give credit where it is due. Thank you Priscilla and all the staff of EPE for opening and maintaining Graceland. I am sure it will still be going strong in 30 more years.

    Part of the information about the 30th anniversary of Gracelands opening shows that besides the taxes they pay into the public coffers and the employment they provide for citizens in Memphis they also generate huge spending that benefits the community:

    Graceland's draw has long had a spillover effect on the Memphis economy, with visitors spending money on hotel rooms, dining and other things. In the mid-1980s, travel expenditures in Memphis were estimated at about $1 billion; in 2011, with many more local attractions for tourists to see, travel expenditures exceeded $3 billion, according to the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau
