Denver City Home Holds Claim To Fame

Long before he was the "King", Elvis Presley made a stop in Denver City.

Presley was apparently playing clubs in West Texas and was driving through Denver City when he ran out of gas. Apparently, he stopped at a home on North Brady Street. There was a gas well service behind the house and the homeowner, Lottie May Long gave Presely some gas. She told her relatives he was very polite and they say she was an Elvis fan until the day she died.
