Contest #706 – Paisley Park, Home of Prince, Chanhassen, Minnesota, USA

This is a picture of the urn where the Artist Prince’s cremains are stored. It is modeled on his home and studio, Paisley Park, site of this week’s contest. It is also displayed in the foyer of the site.

Paisley Park

Prince purchased the land and commissioned the studio and living quarters in 1987. His vision was that it would become a public venue similar to Graceland. Not unlike Elvis and Graceland, Prince died at Paisley Park in April, 2016.

Contest #706 Hint

Like “Graceland” this is the Artist’s home and final resting place. In fact, the tours of this place are conducted by the same company that does the tours at Graceland.

Present-day photograph of a whitewashed house, about 15 feet wide. Four bannistered steps in the foreground lead up to a roofed porch that holds a swing wide enough for two. The front of the house has a door and a single-paned window. The visible side of the house, about 30 feet long, has double-paned windows.

“The King”, Elvis Presley, was born at this modest location in January, 1935. The house survived a tornado in 1936, but was substantially damaged by another tornado last week (May 2nd, 2021).
