Lucy The Elephant
This huge 90-ton National Historic Landmark was built in the early 1880s in hopes of attracting buyers to real estate mogul James Lafferty's choice beach property. Woodrow Wilson and Henry Ford were among the many visitors who came to see this remarkable elephant, and Lucy still draws 'em in today. Tour the interior and enjoy the view from atop her back. Disrepair forced her into retirement during the early 1960s, but she's back on the job thanks to ongoing renovations that began during the 1970s.
