The Swan Head was on the property of the Villa Chalets. I believe it had been here since at least the 1970s. This could be a duck, goose, or some other bird. I'm open to correction! It was still there in 2018 but gone by 2019.

The Swan statue in Elk Rapids is 15 feet tall. It was built in 1966 to carry Miss Elk Rapids in the Cherry Festival and Harbor Days parades.
