Graceland Tour 1977 - Graceland Interior Designed by Linda Thompson
Graceland as Elvis had it designed in 1977
12 March 1957 Elvis Presley bought Graceland. The contract of Sale was finalised 26 March 1957
The interior of the Graceland Mansion was changed before it was open to the public. However, Priscilla Presley changed it back to what it looked like when she lived there? It seems Ms Presley did not like Linda Thompson's "red theme" interior which was re-modeled 2 years before Elvis died. To give Thompson her dues, Priscilla did keep the jungle and pool room the same Graceland Virtual Tour
