Who knew this was right here in Cornville, AZ! What a unique and interesting place to visit. Eliphante, pronounced "ell-eh-fahn-tay" was residence to the late artist Michael Kahn and his wife Leda Livant-Kahn. The elephant-like entrance to one of the structures gave the building and the compound their name. It is now a private residence looked after and cared for by the a non-profit, volunteer-run and member supported organization. Volunteers and caretakers refer to themselves as Eliphanteers. Featured in NY Times Online Magazine Arizona Highways and The Arizona Republic. This infamous space is little known to locals and tourists alike.
To reach Eliphante you must either drive across across Oak Creek when its water-level is low or take a canoe ride when waters run high. Is it a hodge-podge of chaos or an incredible collection of unique artistic expression, will be up to you to decide! Eliphante is a memorable experience either way. Every month on the last Sunday, Eliphante Village welcomes guests and members to come out and visit with the caretakers, explore the grounds, and share in the bounty of a community-provided vegetarian meal.
