Elvis Presley Birthplace sign vandalized. Photo Date: June 1, 2021.

The Elvis Presley Birthplace is offering a $1,000 reward for any information about the vandalism of a sign.

The brick sign is located off Main Street leading up to the museum’s property.

The sign normally reads “Elvis Presley Birthplace, Museum & Chapel.”

During the past few days, someone stole the “Elvis” section. The Birthplace is not sure exactly what day the theft occurred.

Prior to the latest theft, someone stole the entire sign approximately three months ago, and the Birthplace had to replace it.
