Press Release Summary = New tourist attraction in Tupelo Mississippi birthplace of the legendary singer known world-wide simply as, "The King".

Press Release Body = The city of Tupelo, Mississippi, birthplace of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, is now a major tourist destination thanks to an imaginative Mayor, Larry K Otis, and many others who have encouraged new and exciting attractions to locate there.

An automobile Museum, Buffalo Park, and a beautiful Life-sized bronze statue of, “The King”, when he was a boy aged thirteen, provide backgrounds and subjects for all the eager tourists who in increasing numbers flock to the city with their cameras in hand.

One of the newest attractions is the home of the late Becky Martin who was featured in many TV Documentaries by the BBC, Frontier Films of Ireland and more international media services, because she was a life-long friend of the legendary singer, known as, “The King”.

Jim Browder of J B Tours, also a great fan of the singer, has leased Becky’s home and opened it to the public. Her fascinating collection of photos and memorabilia are on display at 106 Lake Street.

Jim knows Tennessee and Mississippi like the back of his hand, and he can be reached by e-mail jbtcb4ever@hotmail.com or Telephone 662- 842-0488.
