Elk

Elk: Looming over the corner of the courthouse lawn, this steel sculpture by Aaron Alderman is a dramatic welcome to visitors who approach Brevard from Highway 64. Like red wolves, elk were once common in the Southeast, but they had disappeared by the 1800s because of over-hunting and encroaching development. A herd of elk was reintroduced to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 2001.
