One of the most iconic features of Elvis’ Graceland is the gates. The instantly recognizable gates are a one-of-a-kind design that fans line up to take pictures with regularly. The steel gates feature music notes and artsy depictions of the King himself. When closed, the gates resemble an open music book. The gates were installed about a month after Elvis purchased Graceland and cost $1,339.
When Elvis lived at Graceland, fans would gather outside the gate in hopes of spotting their idol. They would also leave him notes and gifts and sometimes be lucky enough to get an autograph. Fans have reported seeing Elvis Presley and his family horseback riding on the Graceland property.
