Thelma and Louise – Hardeeville, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Jasper County Photos  |  Thelma and Louise

Those wishing to buy fireworks from Papa Joe’s in the Jasper County town of Hardeeville must first face a formidable duo standing sentry at the entrance. Dubbed Thelma and Louise by locals, these guardian elephants attract both customers and curiosity-seekers traveling along I-95.

Reflections on Thelma and Louise

Frequent contributor Mike Stroud shares the following about the plaster pachyderms: “This is a cute landmark, affectionately known by many locals as Thelma and Louise from the popular movie. Located in Jasper County at Hardeeville, I-95 exit 5, US 17 South at Papa Joe’s Fireworks, Souvenir, Gift and Novelty Store, this pair of elephants has stood in the parking lot, catching the eye of passersby, for more than a decade.”

Thelma and Louise – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Thelma and Louise, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
