Taken in Apache Junction Arizona right before a massive dust storm hit. I barely had time to get out of there.
The Elvis Memorial Chapel is a movie memorabilia museum showing the movies that were filmed at Apacheland.
Survivor of two fires, one in 1969 and one in 2004, which decimated Apacheland Movie Ranch, the Elvis Memorial Chapel was donated to the Superstition Mountain Museum by Sue and Ed Birmingham.
The chapel was taken down piece by piece, nail by nail, has been reconstructed on the museum ground. The Apacheland Movie Ranch Museum is a special museum of western motion pictures and television that were filmed there over a 45 year period, including “Charro,” which starred Elvis Presley. Among some of the better known motion pictures filmed at Apacheland were: The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Arizona Raiders ,The Haunted, The Gambler II and Blind Justice. Television series included Have Gun Will Travel, and Wanted Dead or Alive.
It will also serve, as it has since it was first constructed, as a wedding chapel and reservations are being taken.
