Memorial Chapel

Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel

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. The chapel was designed by Johnson and McCarty Architects, a Tupelo firm, and was dedicated in 1979. Laukhuff Studios in Memphis designed the stained glass windows specifically for the Elvis Presley Chapel, and the pews were purchased with funds provided by Elvis Presley Fan Clubs. The chapel is a popular attraction and offers a time for meditation and a venue for weddings and special services.
