She inherited her father's farm outside Memphis that she used for parties and family outings. On her death, she left the property to her niece, Ruth, who built a mansion there and named it Graceland in her memory. Ruth and her husband were divorced in 1952 and five years later their daughter, Ruth, sold the iconic mansion to Elvis Presley.
