The Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel at the Superstition Mountain Museum in Apache Junction, Arizona. Now a wedding chapel at the eclectic museum, the building was a movie prop constructed for the 1969 western “Charro!, “which was the only Presley movie in which the crooner and teenage heartthrob did not sing. Originally part of a movie set called Apacheland at which several westerns were filmed, the chapel survived two fires, the second of which decimated most of the rest of the location. In 2004, Apacheland’s owners donated the building to the Superstition Mountain Museum, a move for which the chapel was taken apart, moved to its new location, and reassembled.
