Elephant consists of a tavern and two houses at the intersection of Ridge Rd and Elephant Road. The name of this hamlet originates from the Elephant Hotel sign which portrays the image of a white elephant. The original sign was obtained by Dr. Henry Mercer and now hangs in Doylestown's Mercer Museum. A replica of the first sign still swings from the small crossroads tavern. The ruins of a stone foundation occupy one corner of the intersection. [1]
