—Elvis Presley Monument Plaques —

In 1946, Elvis' mother, Gladys brought him here to buy a bicycle. Once they arrived, a 22-caliber rifle caught Elvis' eye, and he asked his mother to buy it instead. She wasn't happy about purchasing a gun so they compromised on a guitar. Forest L. Bobo, a long time employee of Tupelo Hardware, sold the guitar to the young Elvis for $7.90.
