Giant Lady Legs of Henderson

The largest legs you'll ever see on a country road in North Carolina. 

At 160,000 pounds and 17 feet high, these are the largest legs you’ll ever see on a country road in North Carolina.

Inspired by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, local artist Ricky Pearce created these legs and across the street a pair of heels to go with them. The sculpture is called “Reminiscing,” which you can see written if you walk beneath an arch as you make your way around the legs. 

Know Before You Go

I-85 exit 218 onto US 1 south. Drive around four miles, and exit onto Rt 1148/Old Epsom Rd. Turn right, drive a little over a half-mile, then turn left onto Rt 1138/King St. When King St. turns right it turns into Welcome Ave. and the legs will be there.
