 Elvis Presley’s Graceland Mansion is a national landmark. we will NOT be making any changes like that! You don’t change a national landmark,” said Kern. “There’s always the process of maintaining a place, but that doesn’t mean you have to make changes. You clean it up. You trim the trees and change out plants, but you don’t change the house. Graceland will always be like it was…” Linda Thompson Confessions
