As you walk along the beach of Josephine Haron Park, be sure to go and say hi to Lucy! Who is Lucy, you ask? Lucy is a six story high wooden elephant and a National Historic Landmark. Before Lucy was declared a landmark, she was initially built to attract land buyers. It seemed to work and Lucy was a part of a hotel, a private mansion and a tavern and damaged so badly that if the authorities hadn’t intervened and declared it a landmark, Lucy would not be known to us all. Today, daily tours are held where you will learn all about Lucy and get to climb on top of her for a spectacular 360 degrees view.

  • Great Photo Op and Gift Ship! Top notch local historic stop. Lucy has stood on the beaches of Margate since 1881. 138 years! Great tour guides and volunteer shop workers.

  • Very cute and worth the drive from Ocean City. It had been 50 years since my aunt had been here and our recent visit was wonderful. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide and had beautiful views from the top. Definitely worth a visit to this National Historic Landmark.

  • Wonderful experience. Lucy now a place on my fridge (magnet) and we plan of paying her visit now n then. Something different and extraordinary to do with kids n family. Stairways are pretty narrow so not for all seniors. Got have good knees and medium body type! Nice experience with breathtaking views at the top.

  • Lucy's elephant is located in a park in Margate, New Jersey. It was built in 1881 by James V. Lafferty and made of wood and tin. Lucy’s elephant is six stories high and has been listed as a national historic landmark. It is open to tourists in the summer. Visitors can learn about the history of elephant construction, reach the interior of the elephant through the elephant legs on the left rear side of the elephant, and then sit on the sedan to see the beautiful scenery of Margate, Atlantic City and the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Our tour guide was very professional and informative for a young man. I would like to live in Lucy's belly and look out her peepers every morning. Very nice tour
