The Meditation Garden at Graceland, Elvis Presley’s grave site, is perhaps the most emotionally moving area on the grounds of the Estate. It was designed and built by Memphian Bernard Grenadier (who also built the waterfall in the Jungle Room) in the mid 1960’s. One of the most beautiful and mysterious features of the Garden are the four nineteenth-century stained glass windows in the curved brick wall overlooking the graves. Moorish in nature and religious in their imagery, their meaning has been the source of much speculation over the years.
In researching the history, it turns out that Mr. Grenadier obtained eight windows in Spain in the early 1960’s, each a different scene. He put four pieces in the Meditation Garden and, without any fanfare, put the other four pieces in his private home he built in 1965. The four pieces in the Grenadier home, the companion pieces to the stained glass at Graceland, remained in that house in obscurity through four decades and several different owners.
We now offer the four stained glass
windows for purchase.
