Elvis Brings Peace to Madison

6-24-1977

Many people make to pilgrimage each year to Graceland  in Memphis to see Elvis Presley’s estate and pay homage to “The King”.  If you can’t get there, Madison has the next best thing.  At the corner of East Washington and Stoughton Road is a small grey granite marker..

I turn, my back is facing the road. The marker is here, in front of Shoepp Motors Northeast.

This marker was hard to find. Now that I did, I can share it with you as well. The address is 3846 East Washington Avenue.  The coordinates are:

N 43° 07.012

W 089° 19.506

Thank you very much Elvis for stopping that fight! To complete the experience, back behind the marker is Graceland street.
