Green Elephant

A bit off of the beaten path in the downtown area, this is definitely a full sized green elephant. Now parked on a trailer out front of a local record store.

[Rex McManamy, 10/13/2020]

This is a newer location for the elephant. If missing, it might take a bit of local sleuthing to determine her current whereabouts, since she's on wheels. But it looks as if her skull has been repaired!


Green Elephant

The Green Elephant really is bright green and displays advertising for the next door record store on his body. Great murals around the area also.

[Meg Lukens, 06/02/2017]

The elephant stands on a trailer, so he might be elsewhere when you visit.
