Oakhill Drive house

The former home of Elvis Presley on Oakhill Drive in Killeen is shown.

The circa 1950 ranch-style house at 605 Oakhill Drive doesn’t have any visual features that dramatically set it apart from the other homes in the central Killeen neighborhood not far from Conder Park. It’s a one-story, brick home with a rather large mailbox out front.

There is no Texas landmark sign out front. There is no pink Cadillac. There is no visual evidence that “Elvis was here.”
