PALM SPRINGS, CA – Elvis Presley died 35 years ago on Aug. 16, 1977, and the owner of the Elvis Presley estate, Reno Fontana, is hosting tours of the celebrated home in Palm Springs on Thursday and Friday only for $19.77.
According to Fontana, Presley spent a number of anniversaries and holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter here. He also spent his last birthday on Jan. 8, 1977 at the Palm Springs estate located at 845 W. Chino Canyon Road.
The estate has the largest rose garden in Palm Springs with more than 320 plants surrounding the property.
“When Elvis died, this house and Graceland were the only two properties he owned. In fact, a search online and you will discover that The New York Times dubbed this property the ‘Graceland West,” Fontana said.
“Priscilla Presley said that this house was his refuge from the world. Elvis owned this house for 7 1/2 years, longer than any of his other three homes besides Graceland, and told his friends he was never going to sell it. And he didn’t. Elvis may have left the building in 1977, but his spirit lives on here at Chino Canyon.”
