🕐 1 min read

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The operators of Graceland say the Memphis tourist attraction centered on the life and music of Elvis Presley has received its 20 millionth paid visitor.

Elvis Presley Enterprises says CEO Jack Soden greeted the 20 millionth visitor, 31-year-old Tiffany Greenoak, at Graceland on Monday morning. Greenoak, who’s originally from Montreal, Canada, and now lives in London, was on her honeymoon with her husband, 40-year-old Robert Greenoak.

The couple received a private tour of Presley’s former home, which is now a museum. They also spoke by phone with Priscilla Presley, the late singer’s former wife.

Elvis Presley lived at Graceland for 20 years before he died on Aug. 16, 1977. Tours of Graceland began on June 7, 1982.
