The “Walk of Life” is scored concrete circle surrounding the house where Elvis was born. It contains dated blocks denoting each year of Elvis’ life from the 1935 birth block at the front of the birthplace to the completed circle at 1977. The first 13 years are commemorated by granite markers containing an important fact about the year. The 1948 block marks the walkway of the “Elvis at 13” statue which memorializes Elvis, the Tupelo boy. The “Walk of Life” allows fans to walk through every year of Elvis’ life, perhaps giving them an opportunity to stop and reflect on memorable events of Elvis’ life, as well as their own.
