Are You Seeing Elephants :) :)

In June of 1970 the residents of Margate, NJ got quite a treat as they saw Lucy the Elephant being moved slowly down the street to her new home.
Thanks to a loyal band of preservationists she was saved from the wrecking ball and is now a National Historic Landmark.
She is worth a visit.


  1. I love Lucy The Elephant! As a child in the 60's, my grandmother took us to see her, at the time it was really run down, but we were able to tour it. The newly refurbished one is beautiful and I was able to take my own kids to see her.

  2. I absolutely love Lucy. My grandparents took us a bunch of times too, and it got a little better each time. The museum on the inside is absolutely gorgeous now. Can't believe someone used to LIVE in there! Wish they'd open the bar again too...
