Lisa Marie Presley has shared secrets on the upstairs section of their Graceland home, where so much history of Elvis Presley has taken place. From his music to his tragic death, the upstairs area of the Graceland mansion is part of musical history. Some photos have surfaced showcasing the bedroom and office areas.
“He always had books stacked up high next to his bed and they were all religious. If you go up to his bedroom, there are a little office connected,” Lisa Marie once shared. “And there’s just nothing but books of every religion…a million bibles. He was constantly searching and he was very connected to gospel.”

It has been left basically completely untouched all these years to preserve exactly how it was. She shares that Graceland’s upstairs was a sanctuary for Elvis, and how it has become a safe place for her as well.

And when we say the upstairs area is preserved, that means exactly how it was in 1977.

Despite not touching the upstairs areas, Lisa Marie and her family will often stay at the Graceland mansion and have even celebrated holidays at the home.
