With the recent purchase of Elvis Presley’s home in the Trousdale Estate section of Beverly Hills, a conversation has arisen in the architectural community over the possibility of whether it will be torn down or whether it will be preserved.

Later in the show, Ann and Eleanor continue the conversation on the importance of historic preservation and what steps are required in landmarking a structure.
