A bronze statue of 11-year-old Elvis sitting on a milk crate will be placed at the overlook behind the birthplace. Behind him will be a bronze statue of Elvis the entertainer in full regalia, including a cape, with his arms outstretched and head tilted toward the sky. That's the pose Elvis took when he closed his concerts.
Phase two also includes a nine-table picnic area that can seat more than 50 people and will include a fireplace and more parking.
