Have your event on the grounds of the Elvis Presley Birthplace. Enjoy scenery where Elvis was born and raised. See the “Walk of Life,” the scored concrete circle surrounding the birthplace giving facts of his life while Elvis lived in Tupelo. See the designated landmark signs as a Mississippi Historical Site, a Mississippi Country Music trail site, and as a Mississippi Blues site. See the statue of Elvis at 13 and the nearby “Fountain of Life” and story wall.

The chapel is a popular attraction and offers a time for meditation and a venue for weddings and special services.
Elvis dreamed of having a “place of meditation” at the Elvis Presley Birthplace Park. Before his death, he shared that dream with friend Janelle McComb who envisioned adding a chapel to the park. The fans made that dream a reality with their generous donations.
