Following the recent passing of Lisa Marie Presley – the only daughter of Elvis Presley – a lot of questions have been asked surrounding the future of Graceland.

And now, we have an answer.

A representative from Graceland confirmed to FOX Business that the Memphis mansion-turned-museum, which was purchased by Elvis in 1957 and inherited by Lisa Marie in 1977, will now go to Lisa Marie’s three daughters.

“[Graceland] is absolutely 100 percent mine, and it has always been mine,” Lisa Marie indicated to Entertainment Tonight in 2013. “It will always be. And when it is no longer mine, it will be my children’s. And that is that.”

Lisa Marie had two children from her first marriage: Riley, 33, and Benjamin, who passed away at the age of 27 in 2020. The “Shine” singer also has 14-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, from her second marriage.

Whether Graceland will remain open to the public or not is a decision that will be made as time goes on. Since being turned into a museum in 1982, the former personal home of the king of rock ‘n’ roll has welcomed over 600,000 visitors on a yearly basis – second only to the White House in terms of most-visited home in the U.S.

A public memorial service for Lisa Marie, who died last Thursday at the age of 54 following an apparent cardiac arrest, will be held at Graceland this Sunday at 9 a.m. She will be laid to rest on the property, next to both her father and her son.
