Fans can tour Elvis Presley’s iconic Graceland Mansion in Memphis. But his daughter Lisa Marie Presley revealed one room they can’t access. There’s a secret room in Graceland, hidden away among the hallways and corridors of Elvis’ sprawling estate. And Lisa Marie Presley keeps it reserved for herself.
In an interview with Oprah, she gave cameras access to a tour of the mansion. But Presley made production turn off the cameras when it came time to take them further into the mansion. She allowed Oprah to document the room but not the way to it. She doesn’t want anyone else to find or access the area.
“It’s very comforting that I can come. Nobody actually knows that this is here,” Presley told Oprah. “I know I can come at any time and rummage through the boxes and grab stuff. It’s quite comforting. The whole thing, even the house is like a little time capsule of the past and nothing has ever changed.”
So what’s in this top-secret Graceland area? Just some of Elvis’ most prized possessions all hoarded together. Presley uses gloves to touch the items to avoid damaging or wearing them out. It’s a room any Elvis aficionado or fan would die to see. The room has various jewelry and rings, a collection of sunglasses, and also an assortment of jumpsuits the King wore. In addition, Presley collected and stored around 60,000 photographs in the room. All of it hidden away.
Lisa Marie Presley Spent Her Childhood at Graceland
Lisa Marie Presley enjoys having a place just for herself in the mansion. She said she sometimes goes there to feel closer to her father. When she was a kid, Lisa Marie Presley spent her early life at the Graceland Mansion. She and her father were often inseparable, and he made sure that she had the best of everything.
Graceland was a place of happiness and love for Presley. She described those first few years of her life there as among her happiest times. Presley would often go swimming with her father in the estate’s pool. Or the two would ride a Go-Cart around the estate together. Her father sadly passed away in 1977 when she was just a child, bringing such times to a halt.
But she continues to return to Graceland every year to remember both her father and memories of her childhood. The estate acts as a place of comfort for her.
