Red Elephant, Gainesville

This is well-known around Gainesville as a rental sign. Gainesville High School’s sports teams are known as the Red Elephants, a moniker they’ve had since the 1920s. They are the only high school in the country with this mascot.

Old fertilizer signs have replaced the doors in this historic warehouse. A nice lady from city hall noted that this was a popular photo spot in Clermont.

Giant Rocking Chair, Hall County

Located at the corner of Lula Road and Persimmon Tree Road just north of Lula, this oversized rocking chair is well-known landmark to travelers in the area. Dwight Oliver built it around 2006 for children visiting his Goldbrook Pumpkin Farm, but it has since become a permanent fixture. Stop by and take a picture when you’re in the area.
