PostSubject: A LOOK AT '1266 DOLAN DRIVE'   Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:13 pm

Once upon a time, Vernon Presley married Dee Stanley in 1960 and upon Elvis' return from the Army,
the music legend had the home on Dolan Drive built especially for them as a wedding present.
It is also said that Elvis himself would come to sleep in the house from time to time?

Actually what REALLY happened was this...

Vernon Presley married Dee Stanley on July 3, 1960, in Huntsville, Alabama, much to the disapproval of Elvis, who refused to attend the wedding & was unhappy that his father married so soon after the death of his mother in 1958 and for a while the couple lived at 'Graceland' but it did not take too long for Elvis to demand that his father get Dee out of his mothers house.

Fortunately the tricky situation did not effect the relationship between Elvis & Vernon.

So, in 1961 Vernon & Dee along with her 3 Children moved into a new home at 3650 Hermitage Rd.

A 2 level, 3 bedroom home, which is not too far from 'Graceland'. But pretty soon Vernon grew tired of the house and wanted to move.

In 1964 a new home was built on Dolan Drive which ran up the side of the 'Graceland' property.

And so Vernon, Dee & the kids (David, Ricky, Billy) moved into 1266 Dolan Drive in 1964, which was perfect for Vernon and he had a special gate installed in the back fence which gave direct access to the grounds of the Graceland mansion and his office which was located at the back of the mansion.

Vernon had a new wall built and gates for the drive installed to help with privacy and also over time the house was enlarged making it rather unique compared to the other ranch style homes in the street.

Vernon & Dee separated in 1974 (Divorcing in 77) and Vernon would go on to sell the home in 1978 to the then owners of the Hickory Log Restaurant
located across the street from Graceland.

The interior decor has changed over the years but the basic layout of the home has pretty much remained the same.

Very Happy Thank You For Sharing this, I to have always thought it was a Little to Soon for Vernon to Re Marry it seems right After Glady's Death. scratch

John Wilkinson, the undisputed Star of Elvis Week 2011 (last August in Memphis), has been hospitalized. John complained about testine pains and was taken to the local hospital in Springfield Missouri, where doctors are taking good care of him. If all goes well, he may return home in just a matter of days.
