Seeing the Elephant

October 22 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Emigrants traveling on the California Trail often spoke of having “seen the elephant” at some point during their journey. Join Dr. Steve Owens with Southern Nevada Conservancy and explore the origins of this phrase. You’ll take a tour of the exhibits to see how emigrants used the phrase in their journals, and what types of situations prompted the use of this unusual phrase.
