Elvis Presley’s Graceland may be open to the public, but the upstairs remains off-limits. The rooms up there were The King’s private space in life and remain so in death.

But his cousin Billy Smith, the last surviving original Memphis Mafia member, has described Graceland’s upstairs layout and attic entrance in a video.

Speaking previously on his son Danny’s Memphis Mafia Kid YouTube channel, Billy was asked to clarify where the entrance to Graceland’s attic was.

The King’s cousin said: “When you went up the stairs…you turned to the right, you went up another flight of stairs.

When you got to the top of that, there was two big leather doors which led into Elvis’ office and his bedroom.”

Billy continued: “Just on the other side, facing Elvis’ bathroom, right there on the left-hand side there was a door. Now that door went up to the attic, which covered all the other rooms and everything else. Big attic, big attic.

“If you went upstairs and you took a right and you went down the hall, at the end of the hall was a linen closet. And that was a door. So I think a lot of people probably got that…[mixed up as the attic’s entrance].”

As for what Elvis kept in the attic, Graceland archivist Angie Marchese has previously shared: “All of Gladys belongings, his army stuff was up there. Some of Lisa’s baby clothes, old furnishings and drapes.”

She added: “All of the attic items have been moved to the archives.”
